MOSCOW, August 29 (Itar-Tass) - Russia's Federal Service for Supervision of Communications, Information Technology and Mass Media (Roskomnadzor) has blocked websites registered in the Commonwealth of the Bahamas and India which had illegally disseminated Russian citizens' personal data, the regulator said in a statement on Thursday.

Roskomnadzor stopped assigning the names of the following domains to servers: obmanoff.сс, freesps.com, vroziske.org, vroziske.net, poiskoff.net и chek-you.in. The websites had offered access to passport data, telephone numbers and photos of Russian citizens.

"It's not just blocking a web resource, but terminating domain delegation. In effect, the websites are closed. To reopen them, the owner has to register new domains and invest into advertising," the regulator said.

It is not the first time Roskomnadzor shuts down foreign web resources. As of now, it has terminated the operation of 41 websites (including foreign ones) which illegally posted Russians’ personal data. Sensitive information was deleted from another 37 web resources.
