Russia’s top social network blacklisted by regulator

Russia’s top online social network was banned on Friday from distributing content across the country, raising concerns of a clampdown on a forum used by President Vladimir Putin’s opponents to organise protests.The ban on VKontakte follows more than a month of pressure on the company and its founder, Pavel Durov, who has drawn comparisons with Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg for building an online network with 210 million registered users.
