X is blocking Bellingcat investigation into the Okhmatdyt shelling strike

10.07.2024, 13:17

Elon Musk-owned social media platform X is blocking the Bellingcat investigation suggesting that the children's hospital "Okhmatdyt" in Kyiv was targeted by a Russian missile Kh-101, Mezha points out.

Clicking the link triggers a warning about potentially dangerous content to some users.

"The link you are attempting to access has been identified by X or our partners as potentially spammy or dangerous in accordance with X's URL Policy," the message reads.

It also says that the link may belong to any of the following categories:

  • malicious links that may steal personal data or damage electronic devices;
  • spam links that mislead people or negatively affect their experience with the platform;
  • violent or misleading content that may be harmful in real life;
  • certain categories of content that, if directly posted on X, violate the X Policy.

The day before, both Bellingcat analysts and nuclear weapons and missile technology experts confirmed that "Okhmatdyt" in Kyiv was hit by a Russian cruise missile Kh-101. The experts were able to make this conclusion by reviewing the video footage of the attack, which was posted by open sources shortly after the event.

On July 8, 2024, the Russian troops shelled the children's hospital "Okhmatdyt". According to the Ministry of Health, there were 627 children inside at the moment of the attack, eight of whom were injured. Two adults were killed.
