The list of banned sites in Russia is supplemented by IP-addresses of eminent corporations. Alexander Zharov, the head of Roskomnadzor, explained this by saying that Telegram switched to the sub-networks of Amazon and Google.
Burned shed, burn and hut!
The scale of the lock is impressive, in the total amount was blocked by almost twenty million IP-schnikov, among them the most part belongs to the subnets Google and Amazon. This can affect the availability of even those resources that are in no way related to the "cart". For example, gamers have got under the hot hand: the blockage has affected such projects as Guild Wars 2, Star Citizen, PUBG and Splatoon 2, players simply can not connect to the game from Russia. Problems are also experienced by other messengers, social networks (Instagram, Twitter) and gaming platforms, such as RBK Games. The funny thing is that the lock hit the entire runetu, but Telegram both worked and works, some users just have to connect the VPN, but it's done in two clicks.
"We had an unloading subnet Amazon, which went to Telegram. The point is that the third point of the court decision prescribes that Roskomnadzor and other legal entities do not create conditions for technical access to the blocked messenger. We comply with the court decision "- Alexander Zharov, head of the RCN.
The snake devoured itself
In parallel, the agency demanded to remove Telegram from the App Store and Google Play, this request was sent to application developers. But, apparently, they are clearly not configured to fulfill the requirements of ILV. By the way, "grateful" users decided to repay the same coin and simply put the registry site eais.rkn.gov.ru DoS-attack. Meanwhile, Pavel Durov thanked the public for support and introduced the symbol of "Digital Resistance".
