    <br>MOSCOW, Dec 8 (Reuters) – Russia stepped up state oversight of internet activity on Wednesday by blocking the website of global privacy service Tor and part of its wider network, with the communications regulator 수원컴퓨터수리 accusing it of enabling access to illegal content.Russia has exerted increasing pressure on foreign tech companies this year over content shared on their platforms and has also targeted virtual private networks (VPN) and other online tools in a campaign critics say stifles internet freedom.The regulator, Roskomnadzor, said the website website had been prohibited on the basis of a court decision.”The grounds for this were the placement of information on this website that enable the operation of tools that provide access to unlawful content,” Roskomnadzor said in a statement.”Today, access to the resource has been restricted.”Tor, which was founded by U.S.

Anton Gorelkin, a member of Russia’s State Duma committee on information and communications, this week described Tor as a cover for illegal activity and an “abso<br><br>il”. Tor responded: “By making a comment that dismisses the need for such technology, or by trying to portray it in this way, governments obscure the reality: Tor and technology like it are lifelines.” (Reporting by Alexander Marrow, Gleb Stolyarov and Anton Zverev; Editing by Elaine Hardcastle, David Evans and John <br>estreet)
