Putin signed a law on the blocking of defamatory sites

Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a law on blocking information on the Internet, discrediting the honor and dignity of a citizen or legal entity. If the resource ignores the court’s demand to restrict access to defamatory data, the bailiff can make a decision to block the site and send it to Roskomnadzor.

According to the authors of the law, “implementation will help protect the rights and legitimate interests of persons whose honor, dignity and good name have suffered damage as a result of the dissemination of untrue negative information.”
