Roskomnadzor blocked "Lvivskyi Portal" for news from ATO and about pro-Putin biker

12.05.2016, 01:04

The news website “Lvivskyi Portal” was blocked for over twelve hours after complaints of the Federal Service For Supervision Of Communications, Information Technology, And Mass Media (Roskomnadzor). ZAXID.net reported this from the words of the co-owner of “Lvivskyi portal” Tetiana Ovcharenko.

On May 6, Roskomnadzor demanded to remove some news related to the "Azov" regiment recruiting volunteers and, later, on May 9, news about a pro-Putin biker from Lviv. The news outlet refused to comply. Then, Roskomnadzor complained to the company hosting the portal, located in Germany, and they blocked the website. The news service had to exchange many letters with their service provider to get them to unblock the portal.
