I'm seeing ads on Russian and Ukrainian websites

Пожалуйста, смотрите этот пост на форуме RU AdList для информации на русском

These ads have been reported to the people who maintain RU AdList, the filters that block ads on Russian and Ukrainian websites. Please read the Known Issues post on the RU AdList forum for details.

That filter list has been updated to block the ads it can. But fear not! There are additional actions you can take to block some of the ads the list can't block on its own.

Note: If you use Firefox, Safari, or Microsoft Edge, you may not need the following steps. Chrome has some unique vulnerabilities that make blocking some kinds of ads much more difficult than in other browsers.

If you see ads on Russian and Ukrainian websites: 

  1. Make sure you subscribe to the "Russian and Ukrainian" filter list. 
  2. Make sure that the list has been updated today
  3. Try disabling the Acceptable Ads filter list in AdBlock's options, FILTER LISTS tab.
  4. If you still see ads, read on.

Install Tampermonkey and the "RU AdList JS Fixes" userscript

The RU AdList JS Fixes userscript is a little bit of code that blocks ads that are created by JavaScript tricks the filter list can't get around. Tampermonkey and Greasemonkey are browser extensions that manage userscripts.

The following instructions are shamelessly lifted from Greasy Fork.

1. Install Tampermonkey or Greasemonkey, depending on which browser you use, and enable it.

2. Visit the RU AdList JS Fixes page and click the green Install this script button.

3. Refresh the page where you were seeing ads.
