The Russian government has granted the country’s federal censorship agency, Roskomnadzor, permission to restrict access to websites that contain information about circumventing Internet censorship.

According to the resolution, which is accessible on the government’s official legal information portal, Rosomnadzor is now allowed to block sites with materials “about ways [and] methods of obtaining access to information resources and/or information-telecommunications networks to which access is restricted within the territory of the Russian Federation.”
