Russian media watchdog bans four Wikipedia articles on drugs

Russia’s media watchdog, Roskomnadzor, has included four Wikipedia articles on drugs to the register of banned information, the watchdog said on Twitter on Monday.

Earlier Russia’s Federal Drug Control Service (FSKN) published the list of five Russian-language Wikipedia articles, which, it believes, contain information on drug production and abuse.

"Following the studies of the Russian language Wikipedia pages, four of them were recognized as forbidden ones," the statement said, noting that the fifth page on the list was earlier deleted by the free online encyclopedia’s administration.
