According to creator of the site Dmitry Krayukhin, in early December he learned that Roskomnadzor required registering a site in the register of information distributors. The human rights activist sent documents to the department, and on December 18 he received a notification that they had been received and "would be considered within the statutory deadlines". The next day he was notified of the blocking "before the fulfillment of the duties stipulated by the law on information".
“We have received an offer to withdraw the site from the Russian jurisdiction. We accept the proposal, but we understand that the notion of "Russian jurisdiction" has no borders today," Krayukhin replied to a question about the plans of the site's creators. “But it turns out that any site is a subject to registration – regardless of attendance. Even if only one person visits, it is necessary to register.
The site "Civil Forum" was established in 2011 as a platform for the exchange of opinions of civil activists.
