YouTube has blocked access on the territory of Russia to the music video "Monetka" (Coin) by Belarusian band LSP at the request of Roskomnadzor, Russia's federal media and telecommunication censorship body, according to LSP's official community in VKontakte. 

The video has been blocked because it contains, in the view of Roskomnadzor, information about methods to take own llife as well as calls for suicide.

By the moment of blocking, the video published in May 2017, had had almost 40 million views. The video remains accessible in Belarus.

This is not the first time when LSP's videos get blocked in Russia. reports that in May 2018 the Russian social networking site VKontakte blocked for listening LSP's song "Numbers" - also for calls to commit suicide and information about suicide methods.
