Russia Blocks Websites Advising How to Give Bribes

Russian authorities are blocking several websites that offered advice about how to "safely" give and receive bribes through electronic fund transfers, the Interfax news agency reported Thursday.

The complaint came from authorities in Russia's far eastern city of Vladivostok who have requested that the sites be placed on a national blacklist, the report said.

A Vladivostok court has ruled that distributing such information is illegal, the report said.

… 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.

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.
