Russian search engine Yandex began excluding links to offshore betting companies from the search results. The information was posted in a group of Gambling marketing in Facebook.
According to the post, Yandex excludes sites associated with the bookmakers. It is strange that the measure works only for the PariMatch keyword. For the rest of betting companies brands everything is still the same.
The search engine refers to the law “On Information, Information Technologies and Information Protection” and reports that search engines, including Yandex, do not have the right to show Russian users links to resources included in the unified register of prohibited information of Roskomnadzor.
It is worth noting that Roskomnadzor has already blocked 3119 domains in November. This Russia’s telecom watchdog reported about 13876 closed websites in October.
