Russia briefly bans Google.ru

StopFake.org - Fri, 06/23/2017 - 00:29

By Meduza

Several Russian Internet providers briefly blocked access to Google.ru on Thursday, after the domain appeared on the “out-load” list operated by Roskomnadzor, Russia’s federal censor.

What Roskomnadzor’s blocklist looked like briefly on June 22 Roskomnadzor

By 4:15 p.m. on Thursday, Google.ru had disappeared from Roskomnadzor’s out-load list. In the roughly three hours that the search engine’s Russian domain spent on the blocklist, several major Internet providers, including Akada and TTK, began cutting off access to the website.

Roskomnadzor officials later explained that Google accidentally landed on the blocklist because Russia’s Federal Tax Service provided the censor with a link to an advertisement to an online bettering service. It remains unclear why the tax service sent Roskomnadzor a link to the betting website’s Google advertisement instead of a direct link to the site.

The out-load list is a special database of prohibited websites. Russian Internet providers are supposed to download this database twice a day, at 9 a.m. and at 9 p.m. They then have to block the “out-load” webpages, so that customers can’t access these websites. If someone tries to access a blocked website, they see a page showing a notification that the website was blocked. It usually says, “We are sorry for the inconvenience, but access to the requested page has been limited by the state authorities.”

Two-Thirds of Russians Believe USSR Would Have Won WWII Without Allied Help

By The Moscow Times

Nearly two-thirds of Russians believe that the Soviet Union could have defeated Nazi Germany without the help of its wartime allies, a new survey has revealed.

Some 63 percent of Russians said that the Soviet Union would have triumphed without aid from abroad, a new poll by independent pollster the Levada Center found.

Twenty-eight percent said that the Soviets needed Allied help to secure victory over Berlin, while 9 percent could not answer.

An estimated 27 million Soviet soldiers died fighting Nazi Germany between 1941 and 1945.

Some 36 percent of respondents blamed the Soviet Union’s devastating wartime losses on Germany’s sudden attack, while 24 percent said that the Nazis simply had “military superiority.”

Another 12 percent blamed wartime leaders who were content to sacrifice troops to the cause, ​​while ten percent blamed the incompetence of the Soviet command. One in ten blamed the “brutality” of Nazi forces, while eight percent struggled to answer.

The survey was carried out among 1,600 people in 137 cities and towns in 48 Russian regions.
