Ukrainian authorities have successfully shut down Demonoid.me, one of the world's most notorious file sharing sites, according to TorrentFreak.
The takedown occurred after members of the country's Ministry of Internal Affairs reportedly raided the datacentre hosting Demonoid's web servers, acting on a request from the international police organisation, Interpol.
At the time of publishing the agency had not responded to V3's request for clarification, but Demonoid's site, both under the .com and the demonoid.me redirect hosted on Mexican servers, are unavailable.
At its peak Demonoid was one of the largest torrent sites in the world, with traffic tracking services consistently ranking it in the internet's 300 most visited sites
The site was previously thought to have been taken down by law enforcement on 26 July, when attempts to access Demonoid's site yielded a "server busy" message.
The outage was later confirmed to be the result of a "massive" distributed denial of service attack (DDoS).
The site is one of many torrent sites to have been taken down as part of a concerted anti-piracy campaign by the US government and the FBI.
The campaign has seen authorities controversially shutdown Megaupload in New Zealand. Law enforcement officials initially raided the home of Megaupload founder Kim Dotcom in January, when 70 New Zealand police officers descended on his mansion.
The operation was conducted at the behest of the FBI, which has accused Dotcom - also known as Kim Schmitz - of being the kingpin of an internet piracy ring.
Prosecutors have estimated the ring earned $175m by providing access to illegally copied music, movies and other copyrighted content before being shut down.
Dotcom's lawyers have contested the charges maintaining that the company only offered online storage.
The decision by the court was a blow to the FBI's global anti-piracy campaign. The law enforcement agency is currently seeking the extradition of several alleged copyright infringers including British citizen Richard O'Dwyer.
