Russian village that banned wikipedia

Cherniy Yar is a village of 8,000 in the south of Russia. And it has become relatively famous in Russia after a local judge granted the prosecutor's request to ban Wikipedia statewide in August of 2015.

Actually, he requested to ban encyclopedia's entry on an Indian handmade form of cannabis called charas. But because Wikipedia is built on https protocol that would mean banning of the whole site. Though Wikipedia was not eventually banned in Russia, I spent almost two weeks in Cherniy Yar following its daily life.
