“Such a situation can not be put on stream”, such is the case, that one can not be put on trial an alternative point of view about ourselves, “said Kozluk.

Blocking websites for the “obescheschivanie” is another tool in the Arsenal of the Russian authorities in the face of Roskomnadzor of the anti-libertarian on the Internet in General. Now, according to Roskomsnab, locking individual resources (with the same link to download a proxy and VPN) can take place without a court order: “Roskomnadzor considers just what it needs to prevent access to some other resource”. The new bill makes this process more elegant. “First will be blocked by a court decision the main site, and then will begin to prevent” access “to block other resources with the same” mirrors “, – predicts Artem Kozlyuk.

Russia is not alone in its desire to protect “the honor and dignity of the physical and legal persons”. A week ago, in the first reading in Belarus, adopted a draft law, which generally permits the blocking of websites without a court order – including, because there can be “false data”. The Belarusian lawmakers have argued their position that

“we need to harmonize Belarusian legislation with the legislation of Russia and Kazakhstan”, but also added that he is closely watching the epic with the Telegram.

“Harmonization” of the law in terms of the restrictions in the States of the Eurasian Union at a high level while not discussed, but the countries definitely have something each other to learn.

One ban

In Kazakhstan, which is the story of the Telegram is monitored no less carefully than the official Minsk, the messenger of Pavel Durov in the evening “is” within one to two hours for a couple of weeks. There are gaps, but they are connected so that the air leaves the main enemy of Nursultan Nazarbayev’s fugitive oligarch Mukhtar Ablyazov.

When he online – “drops” and even Facebook, intermittently running YouTube. Sites not that do not open, just open very slowly.

The Kazakh government openly admitted that the slowdown of the work of the messengers is their handiwork.

“In the framework of the decision of the Yessil District Court of the Republic of Kazakhstan for the dissemination of information, to the appropriate notification letters to the owners of foreign social networks and messengers, through which are distributed prohibited materials, in this respect, the possible technical failures in social networks.

The court decision has not been seen, but the fact that the court of Astana is part of the ban and the blocking of Internet resources in Kazakhstan is interesting.

“Good, do it: the Prosecutor’s office goes to court, and a single district court in Astana makes the decision to block” Adil Soz “Tamara Kaleeva .- The meeting passes in an accelerated manner, of the defendant, just not name, allegedly did not find. “

After that, the site is blocked either automatically or, if we are talking about messengers, they begin to jam through a technical service.

In special cases, it comes in a large number of different regulations that allow to “turn off” a resource for others. For example, a resource ratel.kz the Prosecutor’s office and – surprise! – The Ministry of aerospace industry demanded on the basis of that the owner of the domain was killed, and at re-registration time was not given. Now the owners of the site are trying to prove the illegality of blocking in the courts.

In 2017 Kazakhstan is blocked, according to the Minister of Information and Communications Dauren Abaev, 9,000 sites – formally for extremism, terrorism, propaganda of violence and suicide. However, the caveat is is the list of blocked sales. “Regulatory authorities attribute this to the fact that they protect the public from the temptation to climb on the forbidden site,” says Tamara Kaleeva. To find yourself it is theoretically possible, if on the Ministry’s website to drive your online in a special line. But out of this list is not easy. The authorities of Kazakhstan in this sense, just decided not really to keep up appearances. “The authority lock gave power structures, and in general came to the conclusion that collectively the level of the presidential administration.

The Belarusian variant of extrajudicial blocking of sites (for this year, for example, a “threat to national security” blocked the site “Charter-97”) for Kazakhstan is unacceptable. But extrajudicial blocking of websites with Russia (though only “pirate”). In turn,

Belarus took from Kazakhstan, the provision on authorization via SMS on the website, and Kazakhstan from Russia.

Kazakhstan, however, this trio is still at the forefront in terms of not only blocking the Internet, but and variety of locks. This week in the Republic, for example, has been blocked by the portal svpressa.ru – formally due to the fact that it is the same as in your IP with pornographic resource on the territory of Kazakhstan.

Under the Eurasian dome

The desire to harmonize their legislation to the needs of the Eurasian Union is only only Belarus, but technically it can be done by all participants, said Artyom Kozlyuk of Roskomsnab. “The government, of course, their legislative framework, but they agree on the common policy: eg in relation to razdelyvanie domains, says Kozlyuk.” – Let’s say , and Vice versa. “

You do not even need to change their country. I must say, about such arrangements was more in 2015, but since then, the cooperation became closer.

Maybe it’s that “common Eurasian firewall” is not only complicated in technical execution, but gives each leader a sense of jealousy.

“Everyone wants to control the Internet in their own way.” In addition, inevitably the question arises about the center of which will proceed all the way. locks. “But in an authoritarian country everyone wants to block and monitor everything – but in his” apartment. “

So instead of a single, legislative framework, States are more likely to take each other’s practices and apply them to their own circumstances. The Ministry of Information and Communications of Kazakhstan, for example, tries on the role of Roskomnadzor. In the future Russia can completely give the question of locks on the FSB. Belarus may increase the sentences for libel on the Internet to the Kazakhstan scale, and Astana can finally be discarded and deprived of the procedure.

And in this case will be happy, except for Internet users, of course. But here, too, can help the experience of their neighbors in Kazakhstan, for example, users began to get used to that in the evening. And even the airplanes from the street to pick up was not necessary.
