The Internet encyclopedia was in an expanding list of web sites that cannot be accessed in China.
China completely banned the online encyclopedia Wikipedia, by blocking access to the website in all languages.
Thus, Wikipedia appeared in the list of banned sites along with Google, Facebook and LinkedIn, Twitter and others. To access them, users use virtual private networks and VPN to bypass censorship.
The Wikimedia Foundation said it had not received any notification about the ban.
Earlier the country was blocked only the Chinese version of the encyclopedia. Users also could not view the page with some search terms such as “Dalai Lama” and “Tiananmen massacre”.
The Internet encyclopedia intermittently blocked by the authorities around the world: access to it is already banned in Turkey and partly in Venezuela.
