Anyone else uneasy about TASS images distributed on the Alamy News Feed right now?

Does anyone else feel uneasy by images from TASS, Russia's state owned news agency, still being distributed on Alamy Live News, or is it just me? I do not meant to politicise the forum with this thread, I know that's a taboo on here. But... I am fully supportive of freedom of press and showing all angles, and freedom of press is not in place at that agency at the moment. This is a state owned, state sanctioned agency and whilst sports images may well be "neutral", captions on images by TASS from both Russia and Ukraine in the last few days are notably not neutral or truthful.

 

Would love to hear from Alamy what the take is on this. And how does parent PA Images view this? It's an honest question. I am asking this in the context of some Russian backed news outlets now banned in many places, i.e. RT has been taken off freeview, SKY etc. in the UK.
