The website of the Orthodox Church of Ukraine (WTO) was blocked in Russia.

It is noted that the blocking was initiated by “An unspecified government agency.” However, with a high probability it can be argued that this is the Prosecutor General's Office of the Russian Federation.
The reason for the blocking is unknown, but one of the reasons could be “military censorship”, since the VCU website has posts in support of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
