I'm unsure if it's lawful right as it's actually and update to "criteria
for judging the content if it's good or not". I'm unsure if Federal tax
service actually can to issue an update saying that it's going to
consider websites hosting circumvention tools illegal BECAUSE OF
possibility to gain access to gambling websites through circumvention
tools. Argumentum ad absurdum: sold laptops and travelling to another
country may be used to gain access to gambling websites, so Federal Tax
Service should also ban websites selling computers and airplane tickets.

That's why I say "sort of a right".

Yep, that's what I get from the document. The bill making running at Tor
node possibly questionable activity (that was discussed in the very
first message of the thread) is yet to be accepted by the parliament.
The draft used during the first hearing also had no punishment (no fine,
no criminal charges) for running Tor node as far as I could understand.
The bill have passed the first hearing of three by the moment.
