Technically, the magazine was not cleared but the Classification Board ruled that Russh magazine was not subject to their ruling since Russh magazine is not considered a submittable publication. According to their web site, a submittable publication is one that is likely to be restricted to adults because it:
- contains depictions or descriptions likely to cause offense to a reasonable adult, or
- is unsuitable for a minor to see or read, or
- is likely to be refused classification.
