MOSCOW, February 4 - RAPSI. Over 90 websites registered in Russia have been closed in 2013 for containing child pornography, Tatyana Shishova of the Interpol National Central Bureau at the Interior Ministry said at an Internet security conference on Monday.

The federal law On Protecting Children from Information Harmful to Their Health and Development, which came into force on September 1, 2012, stipulated the establishment of an automated registry of domain names to identify websites that contain prohibited information, such as child porn and information about how to commit suicide or make drugs.

If such information is found, the website may be closed without the court order. If the website contains other kinds of prohibited information, the decision to close the website may only be made by court.

The consumer rights watchdog is responsible for placing websites in the registry that contain information on how to commit suicide. The rate of all kinds of crimes is growing on the Internet, Shishova added.
