DuckDuckGo to Down-Rank Sites Associated With Russian Disinformation

The move is in response to Russia's invasion of Ukraine. However, some users are complaining the action goes against DuckDuckGo's goal of unbiased search results.

DuckDuckGo is now down-ranking sites associated with Russian disinformation in response to the Kremlin’s invasion of Ukraine, but some critics say the change amounts to censorship. 

DuckDuckGo CEO Gabriel Weinberg announced the down-ranking on Twitter. “Like so many others I am sickened by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and the gigantic humanitarian crisis it continues to create,” he wrote in the tweet, which included the hashtag StandWithUkraine. 

“At DuckDuckGo, we've been rolling out search updates that down-rank sites associated with Russian disinformation,” he added.
