According to the Ministry of Information of the Donetsk People’s Republic (DNR), the official website of the Council of Ministers and the National Soviet of the Donetsk People’s Republic, dnr.today, was blocked on January 27.
In clarifying the reasons why the site is offline, we uncovered an attempt to steal the domain name via the domain registrar icann.org. In addition, the Austro-American company ICANN lodged a denial of service attack on our site.
We believe this was done in order to prevent millions of Internet users from receiving accurate information about the situation in the Donetsk People’s Republic. The U.S. henchmen in the Ukrainian government and Rada have declared the Donetsk People’s Republic a terrorist organization and subjected us to sanctions in the information sphere.
The economic, transport and humanitarian blockade imposed on the civilian population of the Donetsk People’s Republic seemed insufficient means to pressure the government. Now they are trying to create an information famine.
All of this suggests that neither Ukraine, nor the European countries, nor the U.S., with their “democratic” principles, are willing to see the truth and contend with it in the media.
We are working to create a “mirror” site of dnr.today at the domain dnr-online.ru to end the information blockade.
Note: The mirror site is now live at dnr-online.ru
