bitbucket.org is blocked in Kazakhstan

Issue #16147 resolved
Pavel created an issue

Hi. Unfortunately, for many months bitbucket.org does not work correctly on all providers of Kazakhstan. But if several months ago only one of three IP-addresses of the domain was blocked (104.192.143.2), then approximately two weeks our providers blocked access to all IP-addresses of the domain (104.192.143.1, 104.192.143.2, 104.192.143.3). Here is the official response of the Ministry of Information of Kazakhstan: https://dialog.egov.kz/blogs/all-questions/493169 , https://dialog.egov.kz/blogs/all-questions/493062 , https://dialog.egov.kz/questioncontroller/view?id=491464 (use Google Translate). In short - our Ministry found on the bitbucket.org signs of propaganda of narcotic drugs (yes, that's funny). And they are trying to find contacts with the administration of the website (maybe even a legal address to send a letter by post, we can expect anything). Maybe someone of the support team can write them a message and ask what they want to delete? Their contacts are here: http://mic.gov.kz/en/kategorii/kontakty-18

    The Ministry refuses to provide links to the illegal content in their opinion "for the purpose of information security" (https://dialog.egov.kz/blogs/all-questions/495159):

    Между тем, в целях информационной безопасности предоставления ссылки на противоправный контент не представляется возможным.

    I was contacted by Butbucket support and they informed me that they sent instruction about what to do to remove illegal content to the contact e-mail address of the ministry. We can also try to send a message (in Russian) with this link https://www.atlassian.com/trust/privacy/guidelines-for-law-enforcement to the contacts listed in the first message (http://mic.gov.kz/en/kategorii/kontakty-18) and ask them to send a complaint to lawenforcement@atlassian.com.

    Looks like The Ministry finally has been unblocked the bitbucket.org IP addresses, it's accessible now. Please double check.
