Roskomnadzor has restricted access to the websites of the US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and State Department Justice Awards Program. This is reported by the Roskomsvoboda project.
Access limit at www.cia.gov, www.fbi.gov and rewardsforjustice.net.
Roskomnadzor told TASS that the reason for the blockage was the spread of counterfeits.
The department told RBC that the resources belong to “state structures of hostile countries” and distribute materials aimed at destabilizing the situation in Russia and discrediting the military.
Representatives of the US side have not yet commented on the message about blocking the sites.
In May last year, the CIA posted on its official website and social media special notes in Russian, which explain how to safely contact the intelligence service.
An intelligence official told reporters the instructions were for “those who feel compelled to contact the CIA because of the unjust war waged by the Russian government.”
The FBI regularly launches social media advertising campaigns in different languages, including Russian. For example, in January this year, the intelligence service posted a message on Facebook that the mobilization could radically change lives, and asked to contact FBI agents.
