MOSCOW, March 14. /ITAR-TASS/. Website of the Echo of Moscow radio station has been excluded from the list of banned online resources, and all access restrictions have been lifted, spokesperson of the Russian media watchdog Roskomnadzor Vadim Ampelonsky told Itar-Tass on Friday.
“The web page was excluded from the register at about 1am after Alexei Navalny’s blog had been deleted from the site,” he said.
On March 13, Roskomnadzor informed the radio station of the Prosecutor General’s ruling to limit access to the opposition politician Navalny’s blog of Echo’s site. Access was also restricted to the sites grani.ru, kasparov.ru and ej.ru due to revealed signs of extremism - urges to illegal actions and unauthorized rallies.
A number of providers blocked access to the radio station’s site following the announcement. Providers have a right to choose type of blocking, namely limiting access to a page or a resource as a whole, added Ampelonsky. Roskomnadzor recommends the former yet not all providers have the technical capacity needed.
Echo of Moscow’s editor-in-chief Alexei Venediktov earlier wrote in his blog the radio station’s lawyers would send the Prosecutor General and Roskomnadzor an inquiry about which of Navalny’s statements were considered extremist.
