Is it possible to disable validation of RSS-feed for example: https://rss.unian.net/site/news_ukr.rss or https://www.ukrinform.ua/rss/block-lastnevs
(reputable news agencies of Ukraine)
Because of this validation, it is impossible to add many resources that can be easily added to other RSS readers (Opera Mail, The Bat! 7.2, FeedReader 3.14, Fedemon 3.5, Opera Mail ...).
There is of course a workaround through the firewall (where to block a specific request to validator.w3.org, but I would like without it)

What's the point? If a feed doesn't validate, it won't work and you need to tell the publisher to fix it. If you really want to add a feed without validation, it can be done in offline mode. See the guide in the Learn More link.

the reason is Thunderbird will die over time. Because (example) of 100 RSS feeds I can add only 55. On the other hand, in other RSS readers (feed reader, Opera mail etc) there is no problem adding any 100 feeds from these 100 feeds. These programs will live in contrast to a good tunderbird with poor and unnecessary validation... This really bad idea to do validation where it is not necessary... Journalists are not programmers
