State Department Pulls Pro-Ukraine YouTube Video After Commenters Reveal Map Error

The State Department pulled a pro-Ukraine video last night, shortly after they released it on YouTube due to a key error in the map of Ukraine.

Ukrainian viewers quickly spotted the error, informing the State Department that the map was missing an important section of Ukrainian territory.

The video was created as part of a State Department social media push and was highlighted by State Department spokesperson Jen Psaki.

Other State Department officials followed Psaki’s lead.

After the error in the video was spotted, the video’s status was changed to “unlisted,” allowing people who had the link to view it, but restricting it’s ability to be discovered on YouTube.

A message was added to the video description noting that the video had been corrected, linking to a newer version.
