Is your favorite website or blogsite blocked by the Russian Government?

(NOTE:  to have Google check the SAFETY of a site you want to visit, click the following link and then enter the site's URL to obtain a health check. )  This assumes that Google is being righteous ...

As a backdrop on Internet censorship in Russia, click the following link and read an informative Newsweek article (7/31/2017).

SOME DUDE just launched a free, non-profit, online-tool called It lets anyone check to see if a website is blocked in Russia.  Click on over there and see if something you see in your locale has been whacked by the Russian Government.

How does SOME DUDE perform this magic?  Hell, I dunno ...

EDIT:  as of 8/13/2017  (just to check things out) is NOT blocked in Russia. is NOT blocked in Russia IS blocked in Russia
