A court in Russia has authorized the government to block the social network page of a support group for LGBT teens
A court in Russia has authorized the government to block the social network page of a support group for LGBT teens, reports Radio Free Europe.
Lawyer Maria Kozlovskaya said the support group Deti-404 had been preparing for a court hearing on the issue on April 6th.
However, when activists arrived at the court in St. Petersburg they were told that a decision had already been made to include the group's page on VKontakte on a list of banned websites.
According to Kozlovskaya, it is very likely that the page will be blocked.
404 refers to the error message displayed on computer screens when people attempt to navigate to a web page that doesn't exist.
Last year, Russia’s People's Patriotic Channel claimed that the documentary Deti-404 violated Russia's "gay propaganda" law.
