Pirates Challenge Russian Government

The Pirate Party of Russia said on Thursday it would take on the newly introduced governmental Internet blacklist by launching a web service providing access to the banned web resources. The service,, would provide access to blacklisted pages, as well as offer guidelines on how to circumvent blacklisting, the head of the unregistered party, Pavel Rassudov, said at a press conference in Moscow. Leaders of the Pirate Party, created in 2010 and still struggling to obtain registration with the Justice Ministry, said that they expect the blacklist to be abused for political gains. “The government’s resources are finite, but the Internet is endless,” party founder Stanislav Shakirov said. The Federal Mass Media Inspection Service has not commented on the initiative.
