This is a small list of sites/services which were banned by RosKomNadzor for... some reasons.

  • puu.sh - banned because terrorists used it for their publications which still weren't removed (or removed, but admins of puu.sh haven't reported that to RosKomNadzor yet) Unbanned, but still be marked as danger site by security services (for example, SkyDNS)
    Working replacements: http://imgur.com or any other image sending services
  • archive.org - banned because lots of sites about terrorism and lots of pages made by ISIS's terrorists are archives, and they still weren't removed yet. Unbanned
  • mediafire.com - unfortunately today I accidentally found that it's been banned for unknown reasons :facepalm:
    Working replacements: http://drive.google.com , http://dropbox.com , http://disk.yandex.ru
    Unbanned Banned again :mad: Unbanned

So, any web-sites mentioned in this list are not recommended for file-sharing, because we mustn't force some people to use Tor or some other anti-ban things.

I'm shocked that mediafire.com is banned in Russia, it was the only file-sharing web-site I trusted the most. I wonder why they didn't even mentioned the reason for that! Even though I know that there are some other good alternatives to MediaFire, I still hope that this issue will get resolved soon.
