The Federal Service Roskomnadzor became aware of a new wave of blocking gambling websites. Among them – multiple online casinos, sites with betting services, virtual sweepstakes, lottery services and poker rooms.

In just one working week, starting from September 22, the already long list of sites blocked by the RKN has been replenished with more than 3100 domain names. Representatives of the department also clarified that 22 sites that reviewed online casinos and similar resources were included in their blacklist, that is, they did not offer gambling services directly.

The recently adopted amendment to the Administrative Code now allows bringing to administrative responsibility for the fact of providing Internet users with access to illegal content. That is, even a search service can get a fine for issuing a link to a blocked RKN resource.
