The BBC says it will continue to provide news even if it is blocked.
Restrictions on access to Russian news were imposed on several other international news organizations, including the BBC, the world’s leading news service.
But the BBC says it is trying to cover the British broadcaster’s news in Russia, even after the country’s media observer took steps to restrict access to Russian-language websites.
“Access to accurate, independent information is a fundamental human right and should not be denied to the people of Russia, and millions of them rely on BBC News every week,” the BBC said in a statement.
“We will continue our efforts to provide BBC News to Russia and the rest of the world,” it added.
