MOSCOW, November 18. /TASS/. LinkedIn Corporation, owner of Linkedin social network that was blocked in Russia, considers its activities to be in line with the Russian legislation, the company said in a statement sent to users of the social network.
According to the statement, the company is now considering possible ways to resolve the situation.
The company also noted that Russian users of LinkedIn may get access to network outside Russia and also can claim refunding in proportion to the time they were not able to use.
On Thursday, Russia’s telecom and IT watchdog Roskomnadzor banned LinkedIn and instructed telecommunications operators to block the world's largest professional network.
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.
LinkedIn social networking service was founded in December 2002 by US entrepreneur Reid Hoffman, who was vice president of the Paypal payments system. LinkedIn has more than 400 million accounts. In June 2016, Microsoft bought the website for $26.2 bln.
