MOSCOW, January 9 (RAPSI) – Russian consumer rights protection watchdog (Rospotrebnadzor) has examined over 35,000 webpages since November 1, 2012, and found 33,800 of those to contain information on committing suicide or propaganda of suicides, the agency’s statement reads on Tuesday.

As a result, information deemed prohibited for distribution in Russia has been deleted from 29,200 webpages by December 20, 2017.

In 2014-2017, Rospotrebnadzor took measures against books themed on suicide, a notorious youth movement propagating reckless behavior in social media and the so-called Groups of Death, numerous social network groups where young people were encouraged to kill themselves.
