Roskomnadzor blocked the song “Numbers” of the Belarusian LSP group in “VKontakte”. As the administrators of the collective community told , the reason was “a description of the way of committing suicide” in the text of the composition.

“It was declared banned on the basis of the decision of the Federal Service for Supervision of Consumer Rights Protection and Human Welfare of April 28, 2018 No. 45668”, – quoted Roskomnadzor in the LSP community. Track “Numbers” was released in 2014 in the album “YOP” and talked about a young man who jumps from the roof of the house.

And a stone down – from the roof of the house
Do not call: my numbers are unavailable My numbers are not
available
You smile, moisten your throat with “cola”
And pretend that no one was dying
No one was dying.

In the comments in the public LSP, users began to share alternative ways to listen to “Numbers.” At the time of publication, the song can be found in the “VKontakte” under the name “Numbers” and listen to “Boom” in the social network application, but, probably, these options will also be blocked. Also the track remained on YouTube or Soundcloud.

Previously, Roskomnadzor had already banned songs due to content. In 2015, the regulator blocked two music sites for the song “CPVLS” and demanded that Apple remove the three songs “Corrosion of Metal” in iTunes.
