Russia: Reginal Court Blocks YouTube for Extremist Content

Komsomolosk-on-Amur [ENG] city court, at the Russian Far East, ordered local Internet provider “Rosnet” to block access to Youtube and four other websites (including web.archive.org), Cnews reported [RUS]. The decision was made due to a request by the city prosecutor's office. YouTube had been blocked because of the nationalist movie “Russia for Russians”. Other websites were blocked because of hosting an electronic version of Hitler's “Main Kampf.”
