“Putin-2012” Domain Annulled

The first stage of the registration of domains in the new Cyrillic Internet zone “.РФ” (referring to “Russian Federation”) has been completed. Only state bodies and registered trademark owners were allowed to participate. The leader in terms of the number of registered domains is Russia’s Federal Security Service (FSO). It had registered 424 domain names, including “Путин-2012.РФ” (Putin-2012.RF). However, after public speculation that the name was related to the 2012 presidential election campaign, FSO revoked its application for "Putin-2012.RF", along with eight other questionable domain names.
