Russia: Moscow Prosecutor's Office Requests to Acknowledge LiveJournal As ‘Extremist’ Website

LJ user nb_licantrop posts copies of court request filed by Moscow district prosecutor's office in which the prosecutor asks to recognize LiveJournal as “extremist website” based on the title of nb_licantrop's personal blog title “Hail to the Russian Riot – Wise and Merciful.” If the court acknowledges it as extremist, providers would be obliged to block LiveJournal.
