The Russian anti-censorship organization «РосКомСвобода» / RuBlackList.NET announced today on their Google+ profile that they are now accepting bitcoin donations. The person that sent the tip to CCN explains:

Bitcoin businesses and organizations in Russia are having a hard time since Russia decided to ban the use of bitcoins. The bold move from the Russian anti-censorship organization may help spark some fire back into the Russian Bitcoin believers.
