    Thousands of users across Russia found themselves suddenly unable to access the adult entertainment website Pornhub.

    According to the screenshots posted by some of the disgruntled netizens, access to the website was restricted at the behest of the authorities, as Russian telecommunications watchdog Roskomnadzor apparently blacklisted it for disseminating pornographic materials.

    "We don’t value what we have, but cry over it when we lose it. Farewell, #Pornhub," a user muses.

    ​Needless to say, not everyone was happy with this development, to put it mildly.

    "Pornhub got banned, I see no reason to use a web browser now," one person declares.

    ​"Pornhub was closed down today. RIP," echoes another (caption on the picture says "Used the Internet only because of Pornhub").

    ​Pornhub is a pornographic video sharing website and the largest pornography site on the Internet.

    In 2015 the Russian-language version of Pornhub was blacklisted by the local telecommunications watchdog Roskomnadzor.
