The Russian Federal Council, approved a Law that prohibits the use in Russia, of the services that allow the browsing of prohibited internet websites (the so-called anonymizers).

This Law prohibits owners of information, telecommunication networks and information resources to provide opportunities for the access and view of the prohibited sites in the Russian Federation. According to the law, the Russian Oversight Committee will create and will conduct the Federal State Information System (IPG) containing a black list of prohibited resources. Based on the law enforcement agencies, the agency will determine the provider, which allows the placement of software and hardware on the Internet access to banned information resources. An electronic notification in Russian and English will be sent to this provider, in order to provide data to identify the owner of the anonymizer. Within three working days the provider will be obliged to send the relevant data.
