Roskomnadzor has blocked the website of the official newspaper of the government of the Sverdlovsk region “Oblastnaya Gazeta” because of a humorous text under the heading “How to take and how to give bribes so that they do not take it later.” About it wrote on Facebook the editor-in-chief of the newspaper Dmitry Polyanin.
“Roskomnadzor must be liquidated. The body causing harm to the Russian Federation, the media and citizens. The organ of stupidity and arbitrariness, ”wrote Polyanin.
He added that now the site is blocked and the online media with an audience of 1 million readers a month for the period of the end of the election campaign to the State Duma of the Russian Federation and the Legislative Assembly of the Sverdlovsk region is deprived of the opportunity to inform citizens.
“Laugh, gentlemen, this infuriates Roskomnadzor,” said Polyanin.
The comic text of the Yekaterinburg humorous newspaper “Krasnaya Burdy” about bribes was published on the website of “Oblastnaya Gazeta” in 2017, and in 2018 it was removed at the request of Roskomnadzor.
The Volsky District Court of the Saratov Region declared this material prohibited for distribution, considering it an instruction for officials to commit illegal actions, writes “Kommersant – Ural”. And in 2019, the Kirovsky District Court of Yekaterinburg recognized the text of “Krasnaya Burda” as not prohibited information.
According to the editor-in-chief, according to this material, “five trials have already taken place and a final decision has been made in favor of the OG and Krasnaya Burda”.
