Nonsense: Russia shows Ukrainians how to bypass blockings
Before the Ukrainian sanctions the state television of Russia did not show the plots how to bypass the blocking on the Internet. This would be contrary to the policy of the federal authorities.
The state television channel Russia 24 told in the evening air how to bypass the blocking on the Internet. In Russia there is a body "for supervision in the sphere of mass communications" - Roskomnadzor, which by blocking fights against "undesirable information on the Internet."
Despite this, the state channel Russia 24 presented for the first time (May 16, 2017) ways to bypass the blockings on the Internet. "In general, of course, the blocking of popular Internet resources is, to put it mildly, useless," talk-show hostess Natalia Litovka began her story.
"For all those who suffer from the blocking of social networks, but still can watch us, this plot is dedicated," she continued, "there are many ways to bypass the blocking of websites. One of the easiest is to download an application that changes the country of your location to the one where the resource is allowed. Often, this method opens up access to many sites, another option is to use an anonymizer, it will also allow you to access sites without binding to the computer's address. "
"Yes, it is not so convenient, but all the same," said another presenter Dmitry Shchugorev.
The interlock by-pass on the Internet was discussed on Russia 24 in the context of Ukrainian sanctions against Russian companies. Earlier today, on May 16, the authorities of Ukraine banned access to resources such as VKontakte and Odnoklassniki. Under the sanctions companies Yandex, Kaspersky Lab, Doctor Web and 1C fall for. In addition, the restrictions were applied to the National Media Group, REN TV, Zvezda, TV Center, TNT and VGTRK media holding, which includes Russia 24.
Discussing Ukrainian sanctions, another resource of VGTRK, Vesti.Ru, also paid attention to the bypass of blockings. "There are a lot of options: to use the TOR network, VPN (when the user connects to a computer outside Ukraine and from there goes to the desired site), and the lock does not work, and the user does not need to have any special IT literacy, there are a lot of services, both paid and free, which can help any person to circumvent such prohibitions," says one of the resource materials.
Before the Ukrainian sanctions the state television of Russia did not show the plots, how to bypass the interlocks on the Internet. This would be contrary to the policy of the federal authorities. In total, about 5.6 million pages, websites and IP-addresses have been blocked on the territory of Russia since 2012. Among the blocked large resources were torrent tracker RuTracker, and corporate social network LinkedIn.
Moreover, in April 2015, Roskomnadzor demanded to block access to Wikipedia on the territory of Russia. The administration of the online encyclopedia refused to delete the page devoted to the charas drug, and the agency sent it to the lock, but since this mechanism is not perfect, the whole encyclopedia was at stake. Then federal channels did not tell how to bypass blockings.
