Checking site availability in the Russian Federation
Quickly check the status of a site for presence in the list of blocked resources of Roskomnadzor.
Roskomnadzor (Federal Service for Supervision of Communications, Information Technology, and Mass Media) is a federal executive body responsible for regulating and overseeing communications, information technology, and mass media in Russia. One of Roskomnadzor's functions is to ensure compliance with information laws and protection against negative content.
Roskomnadzor has the authority to block access to specific internet resources in Russia. Blocking can occur for various reasons, including violations of laws prohibiting extremist activities, distribution of child pornography, calls for terrorism, and other legal infringements.
The mechanism for blocking websites typically involves the following steps:
- Decision-making: Roskomnadzor decides to block a specific site based on a complaint, its own monitoring, or a court ruling.
- Notification to owners: Owners of a site subject to blocking may receive a warning to remove prohibited content or cease legal violations. If the owners do not respond to the notification, Roskomnadzor may proceed with the block.
- Addition to the registry of prohibited sites: In case of non-compliance with blocking requirements, Roskomnadzor adds the site to the registry of prohibited resources.
- Use of technical blocking methods: To implement blocking, Roskomnadzor may request internet service providers to block specific IP addresses or domain names. DPI (deep packet inspection) methods may also be used to filter traffic.
- Notification to providers: Internet service providers receive notifications about the need to block access to prohibited resources.
