I've checked out the link you've provided, and it appears that this website was banned in Russia due to a court order. Because that's what "суд" means. This decision was made by a Russian court on 29 June 2020, and the number of this court decision is: 2а-2971/2020.

You might be able to find the actual court decision, if you search for it by this number.

My guess is that some jilted ex-boyfriend or ex-husband has posted private nude pictures of their former partner here as a kind of revenge porn. Being identified as a porn-star can ruin a person's career, in Russia as much as anywhere else. So, this kind of thing can be taken to court, and the court can ban the website, if the website owner doesn't respond to the court order and takes down the offending posts and pictures.

This is just my guess. I don't really know their procedure or what actually happened. But you might want to check out your email and contact requests for this website for an email or message in Russian language. Because an official message from some government official in Russia would likely be in Russian language.

Apparently, there is a procedure for unbanning your website. But it doesn't sound easy or simple. And you would first need to find out what caused the banning of your website and correct it, before you would have a chance of unbanning it. The instructions and the procedure is in Russian language:

Indexxx regularly gets removal requests from models, on which we provide advice, country bans and remove private information if listed (which is also is a default rule at indexxx).

We couldn't find any official court email from the Russian goverment. It's possible that it got into the spam folder, which has a expiration date of 30 days at gmail, so maybe it's already removed, but the spam folder is checked regularly.

It sounds like this website was banned due to it having advertisements of magnets designed to disable utility meters for gas, water, and electricity. Which would enable people to get their utility services for free, at the expense of either their neighbors or utility companies.

This has nothing to do with porn.

The website page with the address: <data taken> contains information about the sale of magnets remotely to stop water, gas and electricity meters, which will free people from paying for the service provided, put the rest of the owners of premises in the house in a worse situation.

Hi, in view of the end of the post. It would appear that either Russia bans "indexer" sites, or indexxx.com indexes one or more banned sites in Russia.
