MPs allow restrict access to Internet without court’s ruling

The Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine allowed the National Commission for the State Regulation of Communications and Informatization to restrict access to the Internet on the basis of the experts’ conclusion.
235 MPs voted for the adoption of the draft law ¹ 3879 (registered in the Verkhovna Rada by Party of Regions deputy Vadim Kolesnichenko).
The bill, in particular, provides for amendments to the law “On Telecommunications”, expanding the powers of the Commission to decide whether to restrict access of subscribers of telecommunications to news agencies without state registration or to Internet resources through which the information, contrary to law, is disseminated. Decision should be made on the basis of the experts’ conclusion about belonging of information to such, which distribution is illegal.
