Russian authorities want to shut down world’s largest online encyclopedia, because it violates Russian legislation, Izvestia. The official version of such a decision is that managers of Wikipedia refused to comply with Russian legislation and do not remove an article about preparation of narcotic-containing substances from the Russian language version.
Roskomnadzor (Federal Service for Supervision in the Sphere of Telecom, Information Technologies and Mass Communications) is deeply concerned about the article about Charas, hashish form of cannabis which is handmade in India, Lebanon, Pakistan, Nepal and Jamaica, made from the resin of the cannabis plant.
"Today they "academically" write about drugs and tomorrow they "academically" describe the form of suicide, and then they will publish other forbidden content under the guise of "academic" sources," states Roskomnadzor.
The mystery of Russian soul is really incomprehensible. Few days ago Roskomnadzor stated that Russia is to destroy the school uniforms imported from Сhina. This decision has been made against the backdrop of “feast” in the “city of plague”, steamrolling hundreds of tons of illegally imported food from the western markets, including fruit, vegetables, poultry, diary products, beef, pork, fish and seafood.
