According to the filing, the lawsuit was filed with the Leninsky court on February 7, 2023.

Judge Ryzhova Anna Mikhailovna is expected to consider the request. A court hearing has been set for March 2, 2023.

Earlier, Vladimir’s military prosecutor’s office filed a complaint with the city’s Leninsky court to block the United Nations (UN) website in Russia. On January 27, the court dismissed the case due to the fact that the prosecutor’s office dropped its request.

January 18, 2023 businessman Yevgeny Prigozhin declaredthat YouTube video hosting will soon be blocked in Russia. The next day, the head of the Ministry of Digital Development Maksut Shedaev confirmed the department’s position, which is that the blocking of YouTube in Russia is not planned.
