Russia Blocks Navalny's Website After Billionaire Graft Probe

Russian opposition activist Alexei Navalny

The Russian government has threatened to block YouTube and Instagram if they do not remove videos and other material relating to an oligarch with close ties to President Vladimir Putin.

This follows a high-profile investigation into the men's relationship by Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny.

In Russia, YouTube and Instagram were under the threat of blocking due to a conflict blogger Nasty Fish, and the Russian businessman Oleg Deripaska.

The Guardian writes that Navalny claims Deripaska "was briefing Prikhodko on information on the 2016 US presidential campaign that he had received from Paul Manafort, the former Trump campaign manager", although he offers no proof of this.

Miss Rybka posted several videos in 2016 showing Deripaska on his yacht talking with Deputy Prime minister Prikhodko.

Mr. Deripaska, who has emerged as a central figure in the investigations of Russian meddling in the 2016 United States presidential campaign, said through a spokesman that Mr. Navalny's allegations of bribery and prostitutes were a "hot story that appears far from being the truth".

It said Instagram had complied with a similar request to take down related material and that it was waiting for Google to delete a YouTube video. He also quoted from her book "A Journal: How to Seduce a Billionaire" - in which, according to Navalny, Rybka refers to Deripaska as "Ruslan" and Prikhodko as "Papa".

Olympics Luge Men's Final live stream, start time, TV channel
The best the USA had ever done in the Olympic event was fourth-place finishes by Tony Benshoof in 2006 and Adam Heidt in 2002. David Gleirscher of Austria, who passed Mazdzer on his final run, took gold, and Johannes Ludwig of Germany took bronze.

Navalny said that beyond cavorting with what he said were women in the "escort services industry", Prikhodko was accepting a bribe from the billionaire by traveling on his ship.

Mr. Navalny and his team created mirror websites and called on supporters to use virtual private networks, or VPNs, which enable them to avoid access restrictions.

She has more than 60,000 followers on Instagram where she has posted scantily-clad or naked snaps of herself and a video of herself having sex.

Soon after, Deripaska hit Navalny with a court order for the removal of 14 Instagram posts and seven YouTube videos.

The Interfax news agency reported on February 15 that on the basis of a court ruling, Roskomnadzor was taking measures to restrict access to Web sites that had posted personal information about persons mentioned in Navalny's video investigation. If a decision is not reached by the end of today (14 February), Russian internet service providers (ISPs) must take action themselves.

Navalny has filed an appeal with Moscow's Taganka district court against Roskomnadzor. demanding that it remove his investigation from the list of the banned materials.
