Popular service DeviantArt blocked in Russia

Roskomnadzor fulfilled its recent threat and proceeded to block the popular service for creative people, the online gallery DeviantArt, in Russia.

For Russian users, the DeviantArt website has ceased to be available since August 3. A representative of Roskomnadzor explained to reporters:

The administration of the DeviantArt resource once again ignored the requirements of Roskomnadzor and, within the allotted time, did not restrict access to dangerous, primarily for children, content. On August 3, Roskomnadzor restricted access to the DeviantArt resource ”.

Last week, Roskomnadzor warned of a possible lockdown. The agency notes that since 2019, a total of 145 requests have been sent to the DeviantArt administration to remove “prohibited materials containing child pornography, suicidal and pro-drug content” posted on the site.
