Users in Russia have experienced problems with NordVPN, Proton VPN, and other VPN services, and this seems to be what the Russian authorities were striving for this.Representatives of Roskomnadzor confirmed that, within the framework of the law on the “sovereign” Runet, work is underway to block VPN services, including Proton VPN, which help bypass blocking of content recognized as prohibited in the Russian Federation.
Let me remind you that we also reported that Backbone provider Cogent disconnects Russian companies, and also that Instagram is officially blocked in Russia.
On June 2, 2022, Russian users began to report problems with various VPN services. In particular, Proton VPN users complained about connection problems, and an official message appeared on the company’s website, in which operators suggested that blocking had begun.
Mediazona journalists wrote that, according to user posts on social networks, similar problems are also observed in Lantern and Outline VPN.
Later it became known that NordVPN also “failed”. Thus, according to Globalcheck, the site nordvpn.com was unavailable in the networks of Rostelecom, MTS, MegaFon, Tele2, Beeline and Yota.
Recall that last weekend in a number of regions of Russia there were already problems with connecting to VPNs using the L2TP, IKEv2 and IPsec protocols. In particular, then problems with VPN arose in Western Siberia, Krasnodar and Rostov-on-Don.
