Admin team of LGBTQIA.Social Mastodon instance received abuse email from Russian censorship agency, where they demanded to remove an account. The account in question represented a small group that ran a collaborative blog for LGBTQIA youth and adults in Russia.

Shortly after refusal to comply with agency’s demands, the instance was blocked and is now unreachable from Russia.

All previous blocks of Fediverse instaces in Russia were related to hosting CSAM.

    No, but the users could just create account in any other instance federated with the blocked instance

    Or just spin up a new one in heitzner or something

      Russian bank cards are accepted virtually nowhere, and only few hosting operators accept cryptocurrencies.
