PlayStation still fighting for its banned IPs
The IP addresses belonging to PlayStation were blocked as part of the mass Roskmonadzor blockage.
PlayStation has been struggling to get the Roskmonadzor media censor to unblock its PSN services amid the Russian government’s war on Telegram. The company made a post on the issue on the official PlayStation page in the social network VKontakte.
"The specifics of the services and the complexity of PlayStation make it difficult to remedy the situation completely. Our technical experts are doing their best to find a solution. We are in a continuous dialogue with the major Internet providers and are getting their advice. They all are also making efforts to find a solution to fully restore access to the PlayStation services. The problem will be solved very soon, and we will certainly inform you when the PlayStation network services get back to Russia," the message reads.
PlayStation IP addresses got banned as part of the mass Roskmonadzor blockage. The agency has been going out of its way to enforce the court's decision to block Telegram for more than a month, but nothing seems to work – the messaging app is still available.
Major general Igor Vasiliev, Head of the Engineering Support Service of the Federal Protection Service (FPS), and lieutenant general Ulitin subordinate to him are currently in the middle of a scandal. However, it is unlikely that they lose their posts. Reportedly, the two generals are just the tip of the huge corruption iceberg in the law enforcement structures. This is not the first embezzlement episode in their careers.
