Roskomnadzor demanded that Google LLC remove Tor Browser from the Google Play app store. The agency refers to the decision of the Saratov court, which recognized the information contained in the Tor Browser as prohibited.
“The court recognized the information contained in the Tor Browser as prohibited for distribution on the territory of the Russian Federation, as well as the software application itself, which allows access to prohibited content and contributes to the commission of criminal offenses,” the agency said in a statement.
As previously reported, on May 19, the Saratov Regional Court overturned the decision of the district court to block the Tor browser in Russia due to violations of procedural law. In particular, it was said that the owner of the resource was not involved in the case. The case was sent for a new examination.
