Roskomnadzor blocks russian users from accessing Kherson media outlet MOST
The Russian Federal Service for Supervision of Communications, Information Technology and Mass Media has blocked the access to Kherson media outlet MOST for russian users.
The reason behind the block was the russian Prosecutor General's Office's demand 27-31-2022/Treb823-22 of July 15, 2022, which cited Article 15.3 of the Law "On Information, Information Technologies, and Information Protection." The demand itself is not publicly available, but the record on the website shows that the decision on the block was made on July 15, and the website was blocked on July 18, 2022.
"We felt the block physically when we saw that the number of readers with 'russian' IPs decreased. It became clear that the russians had restricted the access, mainly for the residents of the temporarily occupied Kherson region. As you know, all Kherson providers have been using the russian communication channel for several months, so the russians can block websites themselves," MOST editor Serhii Nikitenko said.
