Russian Twitch streamer Mira, who has been banned multiple times from the platform, has claimed that her latest ban, which she believes will be permanent, came because she was “born in the wrong country”.
In the early hours of March 4th, Mira was banned from Twitch, leaving viewers speculating as to what the possible reason could be.
While speculation has been rife on social media that this may have been due to inappropriate content being viewed on her stream, no specific reason was given – and Mira claims Twitch didn’t give a reason either.
However, in a post-ban YouTube stream, she believes her nationality matters. Born in Russia but living in the United States, Mira believes Twitch is punishing her for it given the current conflict in Ukraine.
“I didn’t fucking do anything wrong,” she said a few hours later, clearly frustrated, in an impromptu YouTube stream that’s now private on her channel. “Not on fucking Instagram, not on fucking Twitch, not on fucking Russia. I was born in the wrong country, sorry.” Then she banged her desk in frustration.
Mira claimed Twitch must have looked for a reason to ban her, whether it was because she accidentally showed nudity or under their new “misinformation” rules. She claimed there was no valid reason to give her a permanent ban based on her content.
She went on to call Twitch a “shitty streaming platform” and suggested that if she didn’t get her channel back, she might stop streaming permanently.
Although the VOD of the YouTube stream has now been made private, Mira alluded to something similar in a tweet shortly after her suspension.
She wrote that she was “banned from Instagram and Twitch and isolated from the rest of the world for no good reason,” adding that “being born in Russia is really a debuff.”

To protect the privacy of users, Twitch does not comment on individual blocks, but only addresses the streamer directly.
Mira says her lawyer will review the situation to try to get her ban lifted – so she can find out the truth behind her ban sooner rather than later.
Mira was previously banned from Twitch in October 2021 for violating community guidelines, such as: B. Accidentally showing nudity in the stream.
