Roskomnadzor continues to block Google Last day, Russian users discovered a number of problems with access to sites and resources of the Internet giant Google. As it turned out, Roskomnadzor blocked a number of services of a well-known search engine by a court decision of April 16, 2018 banning Telegram in Russia due to the refusal of its founder Pavel Durov to provide the FSB with encryption keys for correspondence. 69 IP addresses of www.google.com from 600 known got into the \The first to be blocked were Moscow, St. Petersburg, Kazan, Nizhny Novgorod, Cheboksary, Yekaterinburg and a number of other cities. Google is still figuring out the reasons for the malfunction and does not give exact comments. Roskomnadzor claims that their actions are legal, as the search engine does not comply with the court’s decision and allows Telegram to work using its services. For this reason, a number of IP addresses used by the messenger were blocked. As of today, we are talking about almost 18 million IP addresses of the hosting providers Google, Amazon, Microsoft and Digital Ocean, through which Telegram decided to circumvent the ban of the Russian authorities.
