Enterprising Ukrainian IT specialists offer internet users to restore access to Russian social networks and information resources for a small fee, Kiev-based journalist Dmitry Slivny stated today, on May 24, BFM.RU website reports. Restoring access to banned web-pages costs only 50 hryvnias (about 2 US dollars). Dmitry Slivny explained that internet users show increased interest in this offer.
The Ukrainian journalist noted that one can predict an increase of the fee for this service in consequence of its high demand.

Ukrainian citizens wrote a petition urging the authorities to cancel the prohibition of Russian internet resources. To this moment, over 30,000 Ukrainian citizens have supported the claim.
