Hi Maxim. As another data point, the site works in the US via T-Mobile 4G.
However, I get a certificate warning on your forum link.

Maxim, do you any evidence that there is intentional censorship due to site
content?

Before jumping to conclusions, I would first look for abuse originating
from your servers. If they were compromised and being used to attack
others, it's reasonable for a service provider to block them.
