Russia to block Internet-site "Krym.Realii"


The source is a part of "Radio Liberty" branch office in Ukraine 

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

According to the self-proclaimed Crimean public prosecutor Nataliya Poklonska, Russia's Federal Service for Supervision in the Sphere of Telecom, Information Technologies and Mass Communications is currently preoccupied with the procedure of blocking the access to the objectionable media source.

As reported earlier, the so called General Prosecutor's Office in Russia-occupied Crimea suspected the site "Krym.Realii" in extremism. Poklonska insists the project's publications are set to excuse and justify subversive activities, extremism, and constant discredit of current Crimean authorities, as well as incitement to international hatred. In April all the allegedly gathered materials were sent to Russia's General Prosecutor's Office.

On April 19th Nataliya Poklonska reported of initiating criminal proceeding against one of the journalists of "Krym.Realii". 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.

Later another journalist Oleg Kryuchkov said the suspected was supposedly his colleague Nikolay Semen.
