Russian announcement by Livejournal

Anyone know what this announcement by livejournal is about?

The Google translation is horrible, I think that what they're saying is that the Russian government has hit Livejournal with some sort of cease and desist order related to political protests, but I'm not sure if I've got that right. Anyone able to give a better translation?

Later - many thanks to everyone who commented, that makes it a lot clearer. I was getting a bit worried.

There was a ban order for one particular journal but some Russian Internet service providers had denied access to the lj in whole, for a short time. The problem is solved now.
Livejournal was blocked in Russia for one day.

Now it's back on
LJ was blocked for about 10 minutes.
If you post something that may be construed as inciting mass riots, extremist activity, or public events violating regulations, you will be informed of that and will have to remove the information. It does not say what happens if you do not obey but I can guess.
According to new regulations russian providers has to block "extremist" content immediately. Because they don't have the right equipment they managed to block the whole live journal to some users instead of one particular page. So Live journal administration is working with providers to solve this problem in the future.
I think, with measures like this Russia will be on it's way to yet another revolution... But i still can read the blocked page from outside of Russia. :)
Header says "service rules wont be changed".

But people like to search for a black cat in a dark room.
