    Default Google.ru resumes operation after temporary block

    Roskomnadzor, the Russian online watchdog, briefly added Google to a list of prohibited websites last week due to the domain that was displaying a link for Fonbet, a banned sports betting website.

    From an article on Russia Beyond the Headlines:

    Earlier on June 22, a single registry of banned websites, containing information prohibited in Russia, showed that access to www.google.ru was limited, but later the notification was removed.

    "Indeed, we included one of pages in .ru (domain for Russia) in the single registry, it redirected traffic to a website with banned information, this was a website of one of bookmaker’s offices, which was blocked upon the demand of a federal tax service," Ampelonsky told. "We spoke with Google and they complied with the law, and after that we removed them from the registry."

    Very interesting. To censor Google shows that Russia have determination to enforce their advertising rules.

    I think - that this was only pretext. Goverment showed google what will be happen next, if google will not cooperate with Russian authorities.

    Where are listed all blocked domains? Do they publish these sites somewhere?
