hentai censored

Announced earlier this month the Russian Federal Service for Supervision of Communications has banned all forms of Japanese hentai to enter or be distributed in the country. The ruling came after 13 videos were discovered on Russia’s social network, Vkontakte. After experts evaluated the videos in question, hentai was ruled as child pornography.

Analyst said in these animated films “exploit interest to sex” often “in perverted form”, as well as there is no “storyline and any cultural or historical value”. Also according to experts “all characters are presented as minors, who participate in pornographic scenes”.

The “About Child Protection from Information Harming Their Health and Development” law came into effect last year. With this new law, the Russian Federal Service for Supervision of Communications will remove any material that fits the profile from all websites and social networks.
