Russian internet regulator Roskomnadzor has moved swiftly to permanently block LinkedIn from all browsers in both Russian and English. OK Russian internet surfers will likely still be able to access LinkedIn by using a proxy toolbox, but in the main folks get fedup with all the proxy ads and pop ups, then they move on as time is money, plus of course there is no money to be made clicking on closing pop ups and minimizing and/or deleting other browser ads… Other ways to bypass the Roskomnadzor block is by using TOR and/or VPN servers

The ban comes after LinkedIn — which is currently being acquired by Microsoft for $26.2 billion, although that deal is seeing some of its own regulatory hiccups — tried to meet with Russian regulators on Friday, November 11, in a last-minute attempt to hold off the ban, which will see ISPs in Russia forced to comply with the block in coming hours or else face heavy fines and potentially blocks of their own. – Attribution TechCrunch.Com
