Russian procurator closes down left wing publications

by Russian Socialist Movement (RSD)

Yesterday morning, reports appeared on the Russian social network VKontakte (VK) that a number of left-wing pages had been blocked by order of the Prosecutor General’s Office. And indeed, if you try to open such pages as Levoradikal (Left Radical), LKSD (The Left Wing of Social Democracy) or Progressivnye Levye (The Progressive Left), a message appears stating that the resources have been blocked in Russia by order of the Prosecutor General.

It is noteworthy that this attack specifically targeted pages that branded themselves as socialist. The machine of political repression is gaining steam before our eyes, and we can only hope that the government will limit itself to blocking the VK pages and will not go after their administrators.

We may not agree with everything the admins and editors of the blocked pages shared, but we stand against censorship and the regime’s attempts to silence its opponents.
