Roskomnadzor conditioned for LinkedIn returning to Russia
Social network may again become available to Russians after the completion of the procedure of merger with Microsoft.
The Head of Roskomnadzor, Alexander Zharov, admitted in the interview with Arguments and Facts the possibility of LinkedIn return to Russia. According to the official, it is a pity that the social network "actually went out of our country." The responsibility for this Zharov put on individual employees, who reacted to the issue irresponsibly. However, the role played the fact that the social network is actually in the process of being sold, according to the official.
“Microsoft buys LinkedIn, the deal is to be finally completed throughout a couple of months, and then, I think, new owners will consider returning to Russia," - Alexander Zharov suggested, adding that more than 80 thousand companies reported Roskomnadzor on data localization in Russia.
Recall, November 17, 2016, Roskomnadzor introduced LinkedIn in the register of banned resources and sent a request to the immediate blocking of all access to Russian operators. In the prescription the department stated that the company failed to comply with the requirements of personal data localization of Russian citizens. Later, Roskomnadzor met with representatives of LinkedIn and agreed "to continue the dialogue."
Aqua business on Baikal. Chinese people to drink the unique lake to the lees? What does this have to do with Deripaska?
Following a request from the West-Baikal Interdistrict Environmental Prosecutor's Office, the Kirovsky District Court of Irkutsk has suspended the construction of a water bottling plant in Kultuk township, Slyudyanka district, pending the rectification of defects identified in the course of the inspection. The construction has been put on hold; the court has to make the final decision in two months. In the meantime, public activists and environmentalists are ringing alarm bells. An all-Russia public rally to protect Lake Baikal is scheduled to March 24; its program includes collection of signatures against the plant construction by AquaSib company belonging to Chinese investors. A day after the court decision, a fire occurred on Talovskie swamps in Kultuk – it must be noted that the main claims brought against the project owners pertain to these swamps. The CrimeRussia was figuring out what threats does the project pose to the lake and local environment, how was it approved, whether a ‘water competition’ is possible in the region, and what has oligarch Oleg Deripaska to do with this?
