The Innocence of Muslims May Cost Russians Social Web Access

As we reported before, the Russian Media and Communications Ministery has ordered the Internet providers to block the controversial Innocence of Muslims film. 

      The first instances were reported on the evening of September 18 when YouTube stopped broadcasting in Omsk Region. The providers first denied any involvement, but later Rostelecom admitted to blocking the site. 

      Over the weekend (formerly known as vKontakte) has also been warned against hosting the controversial film on their site. is notorious for having amassed the largest collection of illegally uploaded video- and audiomaterial, which can be done by users themselves. This is how the Innocence of Muslims was likely added to the site. The latest videos have been added today, September 24.

      While the British Muslims actively expressed their aggravation, in Russia, again on site, several groups sprung up to discuss the film. Currently the largest group has over 250 members, and the administration "keeps neutral" in all discussions.
