Four swear words outlawed by communications watchdog — RT Russian politics

Both print and online Russian media have been informed of the four swear words that must never appear either in articles or in readers’ comments. Newspapers and websites which don’t comply could lose their license.The list of unprintable words was compiled by Roskomnadzor Federal Supervision Agency for Information Technologies and Communications and include:“Obscene terms for male genital organs, obscene terms for female genital organs, obscene terms for sexual intercourse and obscene terms for a woman of easy virtue, as well as all of the derivatives from the above mentioned words,” a watchdog’s document reads, as cited by Izvestiya daily.All the other explicit words and phrases will be allowed if content they appear in is marked with a 16+ age limit. In the case of TV and radio, users of bad language will only be able to have their say after 9 pm.Once detected in an article, the unprintable word will result in the media receiving a warning. At least two warning in 12 months could lead to the watchdog suing the outlet in court, seeking the withdrawal of its license.
