Websites Selling Alcohol to be Blacklisted

The alcohol regulation watchdog will next year be responsible for blocking websites believed to sell counterfeit liquor, the government's legal information website said.

The agency will add the addresses of such websites to a national blacklist that includes sites that promote suicide or illegal drugs, or contain child pornography.

The decree was prepared upon a request from Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich, who urged measures to prevent illegal sales of alcohol online.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
