Categories: Eastern & Central Europe, Russia, Citizen Media, Governance, Technology

The Russian Coordination Center for the new national Cyrillic domain .RF [1] stopped the application process for new domains. Anti-cybersquatting measures turned out to be infective and the center plans to review the rules of submission process, Russian news agency Prime-Tass reported [2] [RUS]. It's not clear what will happen to the registered domains. Some sources claim that all previously approved domains will be deleted.
