In Russia, on Wednesday, the websites of Sota and SotaVision, as well as the Center for the Protection of Human Rights “Memorial” were blocked. “Roskomsvoboda” notes that they are blocked along with all their domains and subdomains. The blocking decision was probably taken by the General Prosecutor’s Office of Russia and executed by Roskomnadzor.

The press service of Roskomnadzor admitted that the Sota websites were blocked “for spreading unreliable information about the course of a special military operation”, reports RBC. The war in Ukraine is called a “special military operation” in Russian documents. Any information about the war that does not coincide with the official reports of the Ministry of Defense is considered unreliable by state bodies.

The Sota publication itself stated that they had not received any notifications about the blocking. The editors reported that they will continue to work, and from now on they will offer their materials to readers with the possibility of viewing them through a VPN.

  • Since the beginning of the full-scale Russian invasion of Ukraine, Russia has blocked more than a million sites, including the social networks Facebook, Instagram and Twitter (now X), as well as the sites of independent mass media, including Radio Liberty. To bypass the blocks, Russians use VPN services, which are also regularly blocked by the Russian authorities.
