Petersburg courts ban five more anime
Update. The Kolpinsky District Court of St. Petersburg also banned the distribution of the anime “Aki and Sora” in Russia,
according to the joint press service of the city courts.
The Vasileostrovsky District Court of St. Petersburg has banned four animes from being distributed on the territory of Russia – “The Prince of Darkness and the Hero”, “The Prince of Darkness from the Back Desk”, “Manyu’s Blade” and “Still Life in Gray Tones”.
In the telegram channel of the united press service of the courts of St. Petersburg, there are links where you can watch these anime. By court order, they are required to be blocked for viewing on the Internet.
Earlier in January, the Kolpinsky District Court of St. Petersburg banned the distribution of the anime Death Note, Inuyashiki, Tokyo Ghoul and Elven Song.
As the journalist Alexander Borodikhin suggested , Roskomnadzor could interpret the court’s decision to ban information on specific links as “a ban on content in principle.”
