Russia Bans "Innocence of Muslims"

A Moscow court has ruled that the controversial 'Innocence of Muslims' film contains extremist material, banning it nationwide.

The court convened after a case was filed by the Prosecutor-General's office, calling for the movie to be banned across Russia. According to Russian laws, any content can be legally classified as 'extremist' if prosecutors present sufficient evidence to make their case. After such a ruling, sharing the content also becomes a crime.
