Russia renews access to Internet-site "Krym.Realii"


Site administration deleted undesirable information - Russian officials

Russia stopped blocking the site "Krym.Realii" (krymr.com), a branch office of Ukrainian department of "Radio liberty".

Russia's Federal Service for Supervision of Communications, information, Technology, and Mass Media ('Roskomnadzor') deleted the site from the list of forbidden informational sources.

According to its press officer, "Krym.Realii" administration staff checked the site's content and deleted all objectionable materials.

On Thursday, May 12th, 'Roskomnadzor' started blocking the access to the "Krym.Realii" (krymr.org) site in the view of an official request from the self-proclaimed authorities of Russia-occupied Crimean peninsula.

The so called General Prosecutor's Office of Crimea suspected the site "Krym.Realii" in extremism. Poklonska insisted the publications on the source are set to excuse and justify subversive activities, extremism, and constant discredit of current Crimean authorities, as well as incite to international hatred. In April all the allegedly gathered materials were sent to Russia's General Prosecutor's Office.

The unnamed suspected is said to have encouraged to violate Russia's territorial integrity, since his materials concerning the Crimean blockade allegedly contained objectionable expressions.
