Roskomnadzor has blocked LinkedIn
Social network for professional contacts LinkedIn entered in the register of infringers of rights of personal data subjects and aimed for the lock operators. About it it is reported on the official website of Roskomnadzor.

The lawyer of the social network had previously stated that LinkedIn does not conduct activities on the territory of Russia:
"Our position is that there is no reason to extend the standards of the legislation of the Russian Federation the foreign legal entity that does not conduct in the jurisdiction of the Russian Federation of its activities".And on 14 November, LinkedIn announced its willingness to sit at the table of negotiations with Roscomnadzor in order to settle claims offices to service in the interests of Internet users.

But lock LinkedIn is a landmark event, because before that Roskomnadzor has not made in the register of large foreign resources according to the law on the storage of information in Russia.
