SOCHI, November 17. /TASS/. The Kremlin does not believe that blocking social network LinkedIn might be seen as censorship, Presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Thursday.
"No, there are no concerns. Russia’s telecom and IT Service (Roskomnadzor - TASS) is acting in strict accordance with the law, and requires compliance with Russian laws and regulations from companies," Peskov said.
Presidential spokesman added that the Kremlin does not plan to intervene in this situation.
Earlier Russia’s telecom and IT watchdog Roskomnadzor announced it has banned LinkedIn and instructed telecommunications operators to block the world's largest professional network.
"Based on the court’s ruling that entered into force, the LinkedIn social network has been included in the registry of those violating the rights of personal data owners and is to be blocked by telecommunications operators," Roskomnadzor said in a statement.
The Moscow City Court earlier rejected the appeal of LinkedIn against its blocking in Russia for violating the law on personal data localization. Under the law, the personal data of Russians can be processed and stored only in Russia.
