LinkedIn to LinkedIn in Russia

Η Ρωσία ανακοίνωσε πρόσφατα ότι το LinkedIn θα μπορούσε να μπλοκαριστεί στη χώρα αφότου η υπηρεσία δεν αποθήκευε of the country's users on servers inside Russia's borders, and today officially announced that the ban has gone into effect.

Russia demands from the big ones technology companies doing business in the country not to store data from Russian citizens on servers located outside the territory.

Local data storage should only be done on domestic , and LinkedIn apparently failed to comply with this requirement. linkedin

According to a TechCrunch publication, LinkedIn has been ruled out across Russia. The authorities have asked the ISPs of the country to restrict access to the service or otherwise have to pay heavy fines.

LinkedIn for his part confirmed the exclusion of his services in Russia.

"LinkedIn's vision is to create financial opportunities for the entire global workforce. "But we hear from Russian members that they can no longer access LinkedIn," the company said.

The ban on LinkedIn is a very strong blow for Microsoft, as the company faces the same in Russia, mainly due to the country's president Vladimir Putin's plan that the country should immediately start using domestic software.

Vladimir Putin is trying to avoid software developed by foreign companies, arguing that he could hide backdoors that allow other nations to spy on Russia.
