MOSCOW, March 13, /ITAR-TASS/. Russian Internet users have reported the blocking of the Echo of Moscow radio’s website by a number of providers.

Subscribers of the companies Akado, Rostelecom and MegaPhon in different regions of Russia see the notifications that the site has been blocked upon a court resolution or has been added to the list of forbidden sites when they try to download it.

The liberal radio’s editor-in-chief Alexei Venediktov has tweeted that Akado and Biznessvyazholding have blocked the website. At the time of reporting, Itar-Tass was unable to get comments from the federal telecommunications watchdog service, Roskomnadzor.

Earlier Thursday, Rozkomnadzor said it had answered a petition by the Prosecutor General’s Office and had blocked the websites,, and the blog of the leading off-parliament oppositionist Alexei Navalny.

The watchdog agency said the sites had been carrying calls for unlawful activities and mass actions in bypass of the law.
