Court found US-based social network in violation of law requiring data of Russian users to be stored on Russian territory
Russia has blocked access to LinkedIn after the social network became the first major foreign site to be found in violation of a law demanding that the data of Russian users is stored on Russian territory.
The law was passed two years ago, and this is the first time it has been used against a major foreign company. Giants such as Facebook and Twitter have so far resisted moving their servers to Russia despite pressure from the authorities.
