Russian providers have limited user access to popular VPN service Hide.me after the website address was introduced by Roskomnadzor in the register is prohibited. This is stated in the message Agency, published on the official page in Facebook.
The ground for blocking a VPN service was the decision of the court, which recognized illegal information on the page, which describes ways of obtaining access to prohibited materials, including the acknowledged extremist and included into Federal list of extremist materials to which access is restricted to the territory of Russia.
The report also notes that on the same basis was previously blocked site page of the organization “Roskomsvoboda”, but then the description of methods of bypass of locks on it was changed, and the page was excluded from the registry.
We will remind that it not the first case of resource lock, allowing you to access blocked pages. So, this summer in Russia was a popular anonymizers blocked Сameleo.ru and Crochus. Services were released in late November, after they have closed the access to restricted resources. Then it was reported that for the six months Roskomnadzor in total blocked 74 online-anonymizer.
Two weeks ago, Roskomnadzor blocked another popular VPN service HideMe.ru. The basis for inclusion of resource in the black list was the decision of the district court of Buzuluk of the Orenburg region, which established that the resource gives Network users the ability to access blocked extremist material.
In this case Hideme.ru were under lock in spite of the fact that the site administration has fulfilled the requirement of Roskomnadzor to remove the form of anonymizer.
