Anonymizer and VPN service activity restricted in Russia

1 Aug '17
Russia is introducing tougher regulation of anonymizers, or anonymous proxies, and VPN services. President Vladimir Putin of Russia has signed into law the draft bill the federal lawmakers passed earlier this summer.

According to this publication on a government website, the law is taking effect on November 1. From now on, anonymizers and VPN services will be banned from providing access to websites which Roskomnadzor, the Russian telecom watchdog, has blacklisted as illegal in Russia. Attempts to bypass the regulation will be penalized through blocking the services themselves.
