Russian authorities will be able to control the Internet

The Russian government has approved a rule to block access to prohibited Internet resources. In contrast to the original version of the rules, in the final version of the document is not a ban on Internet censorship and blocking of access to legitimate sites.
Dmitry Medvedev signed a decree on the establishment of a unified register of Internet sites to which access should be prohibited. The document will come into effect on November 1.
It compared with a previously prepared Minkomsvyazi project disappeared several liberal points. The draft document, for example, spoke of the requirements of non-authorized agencies to site owners and hosting providers for preliminary approval of their published material (ie, not permitted Internet censorship). Now this item is missing.
In addition, previously said about the inadmissibility of restrictions on access to resources, which are not prohibited by law. For example, it would be impossible to block access to the entire YouTube or Livejournal page for one user. Now the chance of the authorities there.
Denying access to Internet resources can be installed on either a court or competent authorities (in some cases). For example, the CPS may, without a court decision to block sites that promote suicide and telling how they have occurred and Gosnarkokontrol - sites with promoting drugs, the methods of preparation and places possible acquisition.
After receiving the decision of the authorized body of the need to ban the site should Roskomnadzor within days to determine its hosting provider, send a notice to the site and to register. If after 3 days of access to the information gap will still be open, Roskomnadzor makes the registry a network address resource, and service providers must be within days to block access to it.
