Police in St Petersburg have arrested Yury Khovansky, a star blogger with over 4.4 million subscribers on YouTube. Local media say Khovansky's being charged with "justifying terrorism" for a sarcastic song about the 2002 Nord-Ost hostage crisis in Moscow https://t.co/sk785uVVXe

Khovansky is now best-known for obscenity-filled monologues on his channel, viewed by millions. He has also been criticised for speaking out against Navalny. YouTube has long been a free realm in Russia, but is increasingly coming under official scrutiny https://t.co/RJET8wLXRy
