The Russian government has blocked the stock photography website Shutterstock, according to the English-language news site Meduza. Russia’s media regulator, Roskomnadzor, explained that Shutterstock was blocked for “insulting state symbols” a likely reference to photos on the site showing miniature Russian flags planted in dogshit.

The offending photos were created by user Aijaphoto and are described by the photographer as, “The Russian flag banner is placed in a pile of dog feces. It symbolizes protests against Russian politics.”
The company has now removed the photos from the Russian version of the site.
