The Federal Service for Supervision of Communications, Information Technology and Mass Media, known as Roskomnadzor, has blocked in the past seven months over 600 Internet resources that have been spreading calls for extremism and mass disorder, the report says.
Russian legislators have passed a law, which came into force on February 1, authorizing prosecutors without a court ruling to issue emergency orders that block websites promoting extremism, racial hatred or rioting.
Under the new law, websites violating authors’ rights and containing child pornography, drugs and suicide propaganda, as well as other “harmful” information, are also blocked.
“In our opinion, the law enforcement is effective in an effort to counteract illegal information, and we seek to make it less traumatic for the well-doing websites,” Roskomnadzor chief Alexander Zharov said.
A special Sputnik system, launched this summer in a test mode, helps the Russian watchdog find the illegal content as it withdraws the blacklisted websites from the search engine results.
