State Duma on the possibility of blocking YouTube, California’s lawsuit against oil giants: the main thing on September 17


  • The United States increased purchases of Russian fertilizers to a record $944 million in January-July 2023. Russia is the country’s second largest supplier of fertilizers after Canada (RIA).


  • There will be no blocking of YouTube in Russia without the emergence of a “proper and complete replacement” in its domestic analogues, said Alexander Khinshtein, chairman of the State Duma Committee on Information Policy. According to the politician, “there is no such thing yet, the key word here is still.”

  • Bloomberg believes that the second year of a record wheat harvest has strengthened the Russian Federation’s status as the “number one” exporter.


  • Greece will allocate an additional €300 million to combat the effects of climate change, recognizing the magnitude of the problem for the country.

  • California authorities have sued Shell, BP and other big oil companies, accusing them of downplaying climate risks associated with the fuel (Reuters).
