Daily Stormer Booted From Russia for 'Propagandizing Neo-Nazi Ideology'

Russia’s media watchdog on Thursday said it had requested that a Russian internet provider suspend the Daily Stormer neo-Nazi website after it was previously blocked by U.S. tech firms.

Roskomnadzor head Alexander Zharov told the Interfax news agency the watchdog had “asked” the Ru-center, the company that provided the Russian domain, to stop servicing the website.

“The Daily Stormer propagandizes a neo-Nazi ideology, inciting racial, national and other social hatred,” Zharov told Interfax.

Officially, Roskomnadzor can only shut down websites on charges of extremism after approval from Russia’s General Prosecutor’s Office.

The Daily Stormer on Wednesday said it had re-registered under a Russian domain, after previously being cut off by tech giants Google, GoDaddy and Cloudfare for publishing a derogatory article on Heather Heyer, who died protesting a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, United States.

… 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.
