Moscow City Court has upheld a ruling to block the LinkedIn professional network website.

In October, the Federal Service for Supervision of Communications, Information Technology, and Mass Media (Roskomnadzor) said the company had failed to comply with data privacy law, which obliges Internet companies to store the personal data of Russian users on servers within the country’s territory.

The Roskomnadzor spokesperson Vadim Ampelonsky said the authority is awaiting the declaration of intent from the court, which usually takes a week. As soon as it receive it, Linkedin will be included on the register of violators of the right of data privacy and a notification of blocking the resource will be forward to the operators.
