Since 2012, the Russian government has implemented increasingly restrictive laws, starting by censoring individual URLs, domain names, and IP addresses contained within a federal blacklist.
Coming as no surprise, Russia has recently taken further action and continues to limit access to online information with the passing of a new law which will further limit the way users access and experience the world wide web.
In response, BlockedinRussia.com has been launched by a collective of activists concerned with internet freedom and privacy. The website will help shed light on the state of the internet in Russia today.
BlockedinRussia.com is a simple tool that checks if a website is blocked or accessible from Russia. Anyone can simply enter a website and check if it is accessible from within the country.
