On 2022-04-27 the UK introduced The Russia (Sanctions) (EU Exit) (Amendment) (No. 9) Regulations 2022 as a statutory instrument, imposing a legal obligation on ISPs to block access to internet services[1] of sanctioned individuals.

In May 2022 Ofcom wrote[2] to UK ISPs requesting the block of two particular news sites.

Implementation of blocks is likely to differ among ISPs.
