Roskomnadzor bans Zakarpattia Online

31.01.2017, 14:19

The editorial board of "Zakarpattia online" received a notice from the Russian governmental agency on "limiting access to information source, which contains information that includes calls to mass disorder, extremist activity, participation in mass (public) events held in violation of the established order."

According to the edition, the reason for restricting access to the site in the Russian Federation "was article published on May 23, 2013, containing information from the propaganda department of sports-patriotic movement" Carpathian Sich" over the celebration of the Heroes of Ukraine".

In its message, Roskomnadzor notes that the ban could have canceled if the administration had removed the article from website. However, the editor office stated that they are not going to do so: "there are two basic reasons: first of all, we never print materials that we would want to remove, and secondly, we do not have any negotiations with the authorities of the country which is at war state with Ukraine. "

Editor office offers readers to use "mirror" website of  "Zakarpattia online" located under the domain name http://zakonline.com.ua, in case of blocking.
