The newest Russian anti online gambling law imposes fines on Internet Service Providers and their officials if they fail to block access to foreign casino and betting sites.
President Vladimir Putin has signed Bill 1102471-6 into law, amending the Russian Federation Code of Administrative Offences. From now on, Internet Services Providers and their officials that don’t ban access to unauthorized online gambling sites can be fined for up to RUB 100,000. The Federal Service for Supervision in the Sphere of Telecom, Information Technologies and Mass Communications (Roskomnadzor) has complied a blacklist of thousands of gambling sites that must be blocked at all service providers. According to Russian gambling news, providers haven’t been too eager to ban the domains on the ever-growing list, until now.
