Why is Google Chrome blocking Russian news agency?

For some reason, Google's Chrome browser has blocked access to the official Russian news agency RIA. This is the agency that has just absorbed the Voice of  Russia (the successor to Radio Moscow). VOR site still accessible. The explanation given is that the site has been compromised by Malware. Not sure if that's true or whether something else has triggered Chrome. Thanks to a tip from the latest edition of the NoAgendaShow, definitely the best podcast in the universe. 

Update: 23/12. Seems to be fixed this morning.
