MOSCOW (Sputnik) –A southwest Russian court in Astrakhan Region forwarded its decision to Roskomnadzor, dated June 25, 2015, prohibiting the dissemination of information on the website relating to methods of preparing narcotic-containing substances.

“If the court order is not adhered to, Roskomnadzor will be forced to send communication operators information to block the page on the entire territory of Russia,” Roskomnadzor announced on its VKontakte social media account.

Last year, Russian President Vladimir Putin said that Russia would gradually close websites promoting violence and extremism, which under the country's Constitution is prohibited from being distributed.

Russia adopted a law in 2014, which specified that websites and webpages visited by an average of more than 3,000 users per day must be registered with Roskomnadzor.
