Main page of Gulagu.net website which exposed torture and abuse cases from Russian prision. The message informs visitores that the site has been taken down by the authorities.

For years we've been posting graphic morgue photos and videos and reporting on cases posted on that website all victims were young men badly beaten and tortures in Russian prisons.

In January 2020 Russian authorities possibly on direct orders from Putin seized control of the website taking password and login details from its administrators.

The people behind it are no longer able to inform the world about such crimes and share photo and video evidence which was in many cases uncensored and high quality morgue photos and some videos.

Internet censorship is out of control in Russia and seems to be getting worse with a number of popular western websites blocked including the english version of wikipedia, telegram, dailymotion and many others.

Let me correct you for a bit - English version of Wikipedia is still available here. But the common trend of situation in runet is really pessimistic.

Thank you I stand corrected. Some pages of English wikipedia are still blocked in Russia though but not all of wikipedia.
