Russia may start banning VPNs
Quote:According to certain online sources, the Russian government is working on a bill which requires VPNs and other anonymizing services to stop providing access to blocked domains. If they don’t, they will also end up being blocked. Search engines are also on the black list if they link to the banned websites. This measure has been taken as a consequence of the fact that many Russians are trying to access censored websites with the help of VPNs, proxies, mirror sites and anonymity networks such as Tor.

Apparently, there is a way for VPNs and proxy providers to bypass the new law and remain legal. If they can prevent access to all domains present in Russia’s banned resources list, they can avoid the ban. However, censorship should stand against the core values of any VPN provider.

We, at CyberGhost, would surely refrain from accepting such a compromise. The censorship in Russia is also the main reason why we don’t have any servers there.
