Internet Blacklist to Remain Classified to the Public

The new list of banned Internet resources is expected to be closed to the public in order to avoid advertisement for the illegal information. That initiative was suggested by a special group of experts and officials working on the list's creating.

      Web surfers visiting banned sites will be redirected to a notification page informing them that the site is blacklisted. According to the commission it should help to prevent illegal information from spreading and reaching the public. Besides, it is planned to create a special service which will inform the Internet users about the blocked websites but only when they start checking for their names.

      The classification rule would not be abused, because the owners of the banned sites would be notified about the ban, the officials say.

       Experts also suggest to create an independent public group which will be monitoring the blacklist and controlling the law enforcers’ bans.

      The bill about an official Internet blacklist was signed at the end of July 2012. The list is to be enforced in November.
