Roskomnadzor blocks Khodorkovsky's MBK Media upon request of Prosecutor General's Office
The publication’s webpage is included in the register of websites that contain “riotous statements.”
The website of the publication MBK Media, in which the former team of Open Russia’s website works, is blocked upon the request of the Prosecutor General's Office. This is reported in the publication’s Twitter account.
“Upon the request of the Prosecutor General's Office, the website of MBH Media was blocked. But our Telegram-channel cannot be blocked,” the message says.
The publication’s page is included in the register of websites that contain “riotous statements, carrying out extremist activities, participation in mass (public) events conducted in violation of the established procedure, information materials of a foreign or international non-governmental organization whose activities are considered undesirable on the territory of the Russian Federation.”
“We have not received a single notification since the website was created, neither from Roskomnadzor nor from the Prosecutor General's Office. We will challenge the blocking – from our point of view, it is absolutely illegal,” said MBH Media’s editor-in-chief Veronika Kutsyllo.
The situation on international markets is worsening because of trade wars and protectionist policies. However, Dmitry Medvedev noted that the Government expects the expansion of the Russian economy until 2024.
