Russian internet ombudsman asked prosecutor to inspect Roskomnadzor’s activity

Russian internet ombudsman, Dmitry Marinichev, asked Russian general prosecutor to inspect Roskomandzor’s activity when the last en masse have blocked a lot of wrong IP addresses in order to restrict access to telegram in April this year. This proposal was made in annual Russian business book of complaints and proposals.

The ombudsman assesses the quantity of wrongfully blocked IP addresses approximately in 15 mln. When Roskomnadzor wrongfully blocked a few million IP addresses it did not assess damages associated with wrong massive blockings. When it blocked IP addresses it “guided itself by its own interpretation of court decisions”.
