MOSCOW, February 17 (RAPSI) – Russia's communications regulator Roskomnadzor has blocked two Internet forums, phreaker.pro and dublikat.eu, where databases containing personal data of Russian citizens were accessible for sale and download.

These two web resources were put on the list of entities infringing on the privacy rights, according to a Roskomnadzor statement.

Internet providers were ordered by a court ruling to take measures aimed to restrict access to these forums from the territory of the Russian Federation.

Roskomnadzor reminds that according to the Russian legislation conscious permission of citizens is required for processing of their personal data with clearly defined aims, what the said two websites failed to obtain, the statement reads. It means, the agency says, that the forums have violated the rights and lawful interests of Russian citizens, as well as the law.
