UrBC, Yekaterinburg, March 11, 2011. Tyumen Central District court sustained the claim laid by the public prosecution authorities against OAO Uralsvyazinform and OAO Ural-TransTelecCom and ruled that the telecommunications providers in question must limit Internet access to a presumably terrorism-oriented online resource.

The recent inspections revealed that the citizens of Tyumen Region had unlimited access to a website that justified the actions of the international terrorist organization Hizb ut-Tahrir al-Islami and encouraged its readers to establish an Islamic state, the caliphate, in Russia.

The access to the website was provided by Uralsvyazinform and Ural-TransTelecCom, the Internet providers.

The prosecution authorities are going to monitor the implementation of the court’s ruling.
