What about the pages and the materials in question, is unclear. “We are aware that some users are experiencing problems with access to the site Google.ru. On Google’s side no technical problems. We understand the situation,” — said the representative of Google.
Instead of having to make the registry itself forbidden site, was introduced to the business address of the Google network, which is on the domain www.google.ru says Litrev. This is what led to blocking of the whole resource for many users.

The story of the locks
This is not the first scandal associated with the locks. In early June, part of the resources not included in the black list of Roskomnadzor, was blocked, and it happened because of a vulnerability in the locking system: it allows to attach an IP address of a respectable resource to the forbidden address. Among the blocked was online cinema Ivi, hosting control panel in the office of the users of the hosting provider Selectel, the site of “Medusa”.
Russia has started to block sites with illegal information in 2012 and then was passed the first law banning access to resources with child porn, incitement to suicide and propaganda of drugs. Access to such sites is closed without a court order, they are entered in the register of Roskomnadzor, the Telecom operators take the information that you need to block. Later began to block sites with extremist and generally any information prohibited by law. Then, blocking was extended to sites with pirated content, but in this case, requires a court decision.
