MOSCOW, July 15. /TASS/. A mail order brides website for Islamic State militants has been blocked in Russia’s mostly Muslim republic of Tatarstan, the Russian prosecutor general’s website said on Friday.
"The website had posts with marriage proposals from Islamic State ‘mujahids’ engaged in the ‘sacred war against the infidels,’" the prosecutor general’s office said. The site offered information about preferences of potential ‘bridegrooms’ in terms of age, appearance, etc. In some case, the site had second-wife marriage proposals. It also offered assistance for those willing in reaching Syria. The website was popularizing Islamic State and justifying terrorism.
"’Marriage adds’ contained calls on female users to join illegal armed groups in the territory of a foreign state," the prosecutor general’s office said.
"Tatarstan’s prosecutor’s office issued a resolution on July 14, 2016 to refer corresponding materials to the republican department of the Russian Investigations Committee over the existence of signs of a crime under part 1 of article 205.2 of the Russian Criminal Code (public calls for terrorist activities or public justification of terrorism)," the prosecutor general’s office said, adding that such crimes carry a punishment of a prison term of up to five years.
