Twitter to be blocked in Russia soon, Khodorkovsky’s Open Russia movement reports
Open Russia cites a report of the federal agency stating that if Twitter does not block the account @openrussia_org within 24 hours, access to the social network to be suspended in Russia.
Roskomnadzor, Russia's federal censor, asked Twitter to block the account of Open Russia, the organization states.
In the request of the agency, which the movement cites, it is reported that if Twitter does not block the account @openrussia_org within 24 hours, Russia will prohibit access to the social network.
Twitter officially notified the organization of this request. Open Russia insists that there have been no illegal information posted in the account.
Earlier, Roskomnadzor also warned that resources, including online media, citing materials of the organizations recognized as 'undesirable' in Russia, will be blocked as well. As the agency stresses, "such an obligation occurs if these third-party resources are indicated in the formal request received from the Prosecutor General's Office."
The decision on the undesirability of one of the most influential thieves in law Tariel Oniani’s (Mulukhov) stay in Russia after his release next year was taken on August 6 by Minister of Internal Affairs Vladimir Kolokoltsev. After Oniani’s release, the MIA explained, he will be expelled from Russia for life.
The gray cardinal of Karachay-Cherkessia (KChR), Senator Rauf Arashukov used opportunities to influence the Cherkessian community of the region, especially youth. He was nominated to the post of Prime-Minister of the republic. However, no one shared his political wishes and methods of struggle. According to the sources of The CrimeRussia, the Senator masterminded the murder of youth movement leader Aslan Zhukov in 2010. Many people knew about, the witnesses of a high-profile crime testified against him. But the political weight and ties terminated the case. And even the self-proclaimed killer was unable to prove his guilt in court. However, as it became known the other day, six years after his acquittal, he gave himself up once again.
