RFE/RL's Crimea Website Partially Unavailable On Peninsula

RFE/RL's Crimean news website, Krym.Realii (Crimea Realities), has been partially unavailable in the Moscow-annexed Crimean Peninsula since August 1.

Local Internet users have told RFE/RL that they are unable to access the site via several Internet providers, mainly in northern, central, and eastern Crimea.

There have been no official explanations for the disruption in services from Internet providers or from Russia's media regulator, Roskomnadzor.

In May, Russian authorities blocked Krym.Realii for a day, saying it contained materials with "illegal information" – without elaborating.

Russia forcibly annexed Ukraine's Crimea Peninsula in March 2014.
