Russia To Continue LinkedIn Ban

LinkedIn has refused to host data in Russia

Russia has said that it will continue to block LinkedIn in the country, after the social network sent a letter confirming that it would not be moving Russian users' data to Russian servers. The confirmation comes after the country blocked the site because it did not comply with new laws that state that all Russian data must be kept within its own borders. In a statement responding to LinkedIn's announcement, the Russian regulator said that the site's “violations” of the law only confirmed its “lack of interest in the Russian market”. On the 7th of March, the regulator posted a tweet with an image of the LinkedIn logo alongside the acronym R.I.P. LinkedIn's owners, Microsoft, have since said that they are working to have the ban lifted.
