Russia's Internet monitoring agency has blocked 13 Internet pages linked to the Ukraine protest movement that helped oust the country's Russia-leaning president last week.Roskomnadzor,Russia's Internet monitoring agency, said in a statement published online on Monday that it had been ordered by the general prosecutor's office to shut down pages on Russia's leading social media website, VKontakte. The agency said the groups "propagandized the activity of Ukrainian nationalist groups," and accused them of encouraging "terrorist activity" and "participation in unsanctioned mass actions."The largest pro-demonstration group, which has more than 500,000 members, was not accessibleto users on Russian territory on Monday.While much of Russian media is state-controlled, the Internet has, so far remained largely free from censorship and has provided an active forum for anti-government criticism in country.Associated Press.
