Social network LinkedIn will make every effort to return to Russia, said the company. To do this, the company intends to work closely with the Russian authorities.
“Certainly, we are going to get back. It is important for us to work closely with the Russian government to ensure that we respond to the concerns of both parties. And we expect to do it”,— quotes “RIA Novosti” the words of the Vice President and one of the founders of LinkedIn Allen blue.
Estimated time of return application in Russia, he was not called. “We do not have progress on which to report, and we don’t want to talk about the specifics of the negotiations. We believe that it is of great importance for the Russian citizens and their partners abroad, to the Russian government and the entire system. So we very carefully talk about these negotiations, to conduct them,” said Mr. blue.
LinkedIn has been blocked by the decision of Moscow city court on 10 November at the request of Roskomnadzor. About it the Ministry’s intention became known on 26 October. The reason for this decision is the failure of the social network of the requirements on the localization of personal data.
At the beginning of 2017, the LinkedIn app has been removed from the App Store and Google Play at the request of Roskomnadzor. The press-Secretary of Department then stated that Apple and Google have ordered for the month, which is fast enough for such large corporations.
Recall that LinkedIn entered in the register of infringers of rights of personal data subjects. Previously the company stated that its activities comply with current legislation, but promised to consider “all possible solutions of the situation and options for further action”.
