Roskomnadzor has restricted access to the Depositphotos photo bank. He publishes materials about the war in Ukraine

Roskomnadzor, at the request of the Prosecutor General's Office, restricted access to the Depositphotos photo bank, which published materials about the war in Ukraine. On the main page of the site there is a section "The truth about Russia's attack on Ukraine" with photos and videos.

Earlier, the service closed access to Russians and Belarusians, the site has a special section for donations to Ukraine.

Depositphotos was founded by Ukrainian entrepreneur Dmitry Sergeev in 2009 in Kyiv.

After the start of the war in Ukraine, Roskomnadzor blocked the social networks Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, as well as the websites of most independent publications, including The Insider, Radio Liberty, Current Time, Krym.Realii, Voice of America, New Times,, DOXA, Ekho Moskvy, Dozhd, Meduza, BBC Russian Service, Deutsche Welle and others.

In early June, it became known that Russia was taking measures to limit the operation of VPN services, as the means of bypassing blocking were recognized as a threat. In addition, articles about the “danger” of VPN services appear in the pro-state media, and mobile and some wireline providers are engaged in traffic spoofing to promote materials about the war.
