Russian Internet In 2016
December 30, 2016 20:13


The Head of the Federal Supervision Agency for Information Technologies and Communications Aleksandr Zharov stated that the blocking of the adults’ PornHub web site and the LinkedIn social network was the landmark event in the Russian segment of the Internet in 2016, according to TASS.

“The most iconic and key event by its scale is the blocking of the LinkedIn social network” – Zharov said. He noted that PornHub blocking was also a key event, as it received a lot of publicity and “absolutely every Runet user knew about it”.

Russian service providers started to block LinkedIn on November 17, a week after the Moscow City Court supported the requirement of Roskomnadzor to limit the access to the social network. One of the claims of the agency is connected with the fact that LinkedIn did not transfer servers to Russia, as is required under Russian legislation.

In addition, Roskomnadzor insists that the social network illegally collects and transmits information about the citizens who are not even its users. Pornhub web site blocking started in Russia in the middle of September 2016. The decision to limit the access to the web site was taken in May by Buturlinovsky District Court of Voronezh Oblast.
