The Russian media monitoring agency Roskomnadzor has been busy over the past year.

They are banning sites all over, including sites of internet memes that make fun of famous Russians. It is a powerful political signal from President Vladimir Putin, who wants to limit Internet access in Russia, that is leading to many of the bans.

Yesterday came the decision that access to a number of porn sites are to be blocked in Russia - one of them is the world's most widely used porn site, Pornhub.

In a ruling by the Authorities it emerged that Pornhub and ten porn other porn sites are now closed.

Moscow Times could yesterday confirm that Pornhub no longer worked in Russia.

According to the decision, the ban comes after a ruling by a Russian District Court, which makes it clear that production, distribution and display of pornography are criminal. Russian authorities believe porn is harmful to children.

Also the organ believes that distribution via the internet are aggravating circumstances, and it is punishable by two to six years in prison.

Pornhub has a dedicated Russian-language version, and according to Moscow Times, this is one of the largest distributors of free porn on the web.

It seems however that Pornhub refuse to back down:

- We can confirm that Roskomnadzor has blacklisted Pornhub in Russia. Now we consider which measures we can take to reopen the website in Russia, says a spokesperson for Pornhub to The Verge.

Russia and Vladimir Putin has long been criticized for adding restrictions on freedom of expression in the country, and this is not the first time Putin has attacked the access to internet. Earlier this year, they blocked access to Reddit threads discussing the effects of psychedelics and Wikipedia pages that referred to suicide and drugs.

In 2014 Putin wanted be able to shut down the entire Internet, so that people would not be affected by the news coming from the outside in case of war and huge demonstrations.
