Earlier in the day, local media reported that Turkey's Golbasi District court in the Ankara province had approved a decision of the Department of Telecommunications and Communication (TIB) to block access to a number of websites in the country, including the Sputnik news agency website.
"TIB refused to provide us with any information about where and when the court hearing would be held, that's why our representatives did not participate in the hearing. We learned about the court's ruling from the Turkish media, we have not received any documents from the court," Kerimov told RIA Novosti.
At the moment, the Sputnik bureau's management is consulting attorneys about further actions in the case, he added.
Besides Sputnik, the websites of the Turkish Dicle news agency and a number of Twitter accounts have reportedly been blocked in Turkey.
