DPR head Pushilin says Google blocked in republic

DONETSK. July 22 (Interfax) - The Donetsk People's Republic (DPR) has blocked access to the Google search engine after the Luhansk People's Republic (LPR) did so, DPR head Denis Pushilin said.

"We have made a decision to block Google in the territory of the DPR," Pushilin said in a statement released by his press service on Friday.

The reason for the blocking was "the actual harassment of Russians, imposition of lies and disinformation," the statement said.

Yesterday, LPR head Leonid Pasechnik said that LPR authorities decided to stop using the Google online search service inside the republic's territory.
