MOSCOW, November 30 /TASS/. The Russian Prosecutor General’s Office has blocked access to over 1,300 websites suspected of raising funds for militants fighting in Syria, Russia’s Deputy Chief Prosecutor Vladimir Malinovsky stated at the 14th meeting of chief prosecutors from member-states of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO), the office’s press service told TASS.
"The Russian Prosecutor General’s Office blocked access to over 1,300 Internet resources and removed unlawful information from another 11 websites after being vested with necessary powers," Malinovsky noted.
According to him, the Prosecutor General’s Office frequently came across Russian-language websites, which posted materials on the activities of international terrorist organizations, which are outlawed in Russia such as the Islamic State, Jebhat al-Nusra and Al-Qaeda and requested financial assistance for the terrorists.
"Over 450 Internet pages designed to raise funds for illegally armed units operating in Syria have been blocked at the behest of the Russian Prosecutor General’s Office," the deputy chief prosecutor said.
