WorldRussiaGoogle Maps made Russia's strategic facilities visible to users
Google Maps has made Russia’s strategic facilities visible to users Monday, providing the details of the country’s military infrastructure.
While searching on Google Maps, it shows newly accessible images of military bases, intercontinental ballistic missiles launch pads, naval facilities and key command posts all across Russia.
Some of the newly-available images include the Admiral Kuznetsov aircraft carrier, a nuclear weapons store near Murmansk, submarines in the Far East peninsula of Kamchatka, and a military airbase in the Western city of Kursk, just 150 kilometres from the Russian-Ukrainian border.
 The move comes amid problematic relations between Russia and U.S. tech giant Google.
Google banned advertisements for Russian users following the Kremlin’s invasion of Ukraine, and Russian officials have accused Google-owned YouTube of stirring an “information war” after the video-hosting platform blocked Russian state media.
Satellite images of military facilities are traditionally blurred, or displayed in lower quality, by Google Maps to protect their classified status.
