Roskomnadzor unblocked the website of the anonymous browser and network The Tor Project, Inc. on Russian territory. This was reported by the lawyer of " Roskomsvoboda " Ekaterina Abashina, who represented the interests of The Tor Project, Inc. in a court.
“Roskomnadzor, of course, indecently delayed the unblocking of the site, because the decision to block was canceled on May 19, and since then there has been no reason to find The Tor Project in the register of prohibited information. We even specifically sent a separate notification about this, although the RKN participated in the process. Only a month later we received the answer that “we will unblock this site soon”, and finally it happened!” she said.
The decision to enter Tor into the register of prohibited information was made by the Saratov District Court on December 18, 2017. The blocking of the service began in December 2021 due to access to “forbidden information” on the page that talks about the project. What exactly is called prohibited information, was not specified.
