Roskomnadzor threatened to block Wikipedia


The notification received by the site says that Wikipedia violates the law by spreading information about “numerous victims among the servicemen of the Russian Federation, as well as the civilian population of Ukraine, including children, about the need to withdraw funds from accounts in banks of the Russian Federation in connection with sanctions imposed by foreign states.”

In 2019, the Chinese authorities blocked versions of the online encyclopedia Wikipedia in all languages (it was blocked in Chinese before). The blocking of the site was connected with the 30th anniversary of the events in Tiananmen Square in 1989 — the authorities had blocked various sites on similar dates before.
