Russian ‘Internet Blacklist’ Site Under Attack

MOSCOW, November 1 (RIA Novosti). A Russian website with a special register of “blacklisted” sites came under attack on Thursday shortly after it went on line, the federal supervisory service for telecoms that runs the site said.

"There are attacks. We are retaliating successfully," the agency posted in its Twitter account.

In July, the Russian parliament passed a law to create “internet blacklists,” that rights groups condemned as an attempt to crack down on internet freedom.

Under child protection laws, sites deemed harmful will be listed on the register and access to them will be blocked across Russia. Site owners have three days to remove offensive web pages or the site itself will be deleted.

The requirement for a court order in order to close down a site will be waived for any containing content related to child pornography, suicide and drug making instructions.

The register will be partially available to users who will be able to check up on a particular site but will not be able to see the complete list.
