The Russian Federal Service for Supervision in the Sphere of Communications, Information Technologies and Mass Communications (Roskomnadzor) blocked a number of IP-addresses of the Google search engine. This is reported by experts in the field of cybersecurity, and the consequences of these actions are proved by users in social networks, according to Meduza.
So, the general director of the Diphost provider Philippe Kulin, who tracks the "unloading" of Roskomnadzor, said about the blocking in social networks.
As follows from his monitoring data, about 60 IP addresses of google.com were blocked.
Some users from Russia on the night of April 22 reported problems with access to google.com and a number of Google services.
According to the site Downdetector at 09:30 Moscow time, difficulties with access to google.com persisted in Moscow, St. Petersburg, Kazan, Nizhny Novgorod, Yekaterinburg and several other cities.
At the same time, the Russian domain of google.ru search engine works, the newspaper notes.
As you know, on April 16 Roskomnadzor began to block Telegram in Russia because the messenger's management refused to hand over the keys to encryption of the users' correspondence to the FSB.
Together with the Telegram servers, Roskomnadzor listed more than 18 million IP-addresses of hosting providers Google, Amazon, Microsoft and Digital Ocean, which the messenger used to bypass the locks, in the register of banned sites.
Locks of Roskomnadzor affected the work of many third-party sites that used to host blocked providers. At the same time, Telegram remains available to users.
