Websites Selling Alcohol to be Blacklisted

The alcohol regulation watchdog will next year be responsible for blocking websites believed to sell counterfeit liquor, the government's legal information website said.

The agency will add the addresses of such websites to a national blacklist that includes sites that promote suicide or illegal drugs, or contain child pornography.

The decree was prepared upon a request from Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich, who urged measures to prevent illegal sales of alcohol online.
