Georgia Fully Unblocks Russian Websites

Georgia has fully unblocked websites on the .ru domain.

Restrictions, which were imposed during the August war, were partially removed last month, but some Russian news websites and the websites of Russian state agencies had remained blocked till now.

Blocking websites on the .ru domain, described by Georgian officials as part of the information war with Russia, failed to be very effective, as many internet users in Georgia switched to proxy servers, through which it was still possible to access Russian websites.

Meanwhile, Russian television stations, which carry news, still remain blocked. The Russian stations affected, however, are still available on satellite, but most viewers had accessed them through cable.
