New fines for hosting providers and search engines for bypassing blocks with anonymizers

12 July 2018

On 1 November 2017 new art. 15.8 of the Federal Law “;On information, information technologies and information security” (hereinafter — the Law on Information) entered into force. It prohibits to provide access to forbidden websites by means of anonymous proxies or VPN services. The Law on Information obliges hosting providers to submit information about owners of anonymizers to Roskomnadzor (The Federal Service for Supervision of Communications, Information Technology, and Mass Media). The owners of anonymizers have to accede to Register of forbidden websites and to restrict access to websites included in blacklist. In case of non-compliance with the Law on Information, Roskomnadzor can only block such anonymizer.
