(Reuters) – Russia’s media watchdog blocked access to the website of independent news site Novaya Gazeta on Thursday.
Novaya Gazeta’s publication was suspended on its website and social media in March as a result of strict Russian censorship laws.
In July, the Roskomnadzor media regulator also blocked the website of a new Novaya Gazeta website that was launched in Europe by staff affiliated with the newspaper, and in September a court revoked Novaya Gazeta’s media license.
