A city court in St. Petersburg, Russia, has overturned a decision made by a district court in 2016 that effectively blocked cryptocurrency media site bitcoininfo.ru for the country's inhabitants.

The decision came about after the court received an order from Russia's Supreme Court in April to review the case, as previously reported by CoinDesk.

"The St. Petersburg City Court quashed the decision of the district court to recognize the information posted on the Bitcoininfo.ru website," the city court was quoted as saying in a Tass report Tuesday.

The website's owner told the news agency that the St. Petersburg city prosecutor's statements disclosed that about 100 cryptocurrency media sites had been blocked following the ruling.
