MOSCOW, December 24 (Itar-Tass) - Russian consumer rights watchdog Rospotrebnadzor has decided to close about 3,000 web pages providing suicide instructions, temporary acting head of Rospotrebnadzor Anna Popova told journalists Tuesday.
“From November 1, 2012, we have considered 3,158 links; 95 percent of them contained banned information about ways to commit suicide and calls for doing so, and only in 5 percent of cases we have decided the sites contained no banned information,” Popova said.
In 2,745 out of 3,008 cases the pages were deleted and others were in process elimination, she added. In most cases, prohibited content was detected in the Vkontakte social network - 21 percent, as well as in Google and YouTube (about 3 percent each).
The articles of the law to protect children from information harmful to their health and development stipulating the rules of deleting such information from the Internet took effect on November 1, 2012.
