This is a case of government censorship at its worst: During the past few days, Russian telecoms watch Roscomnadzor says it sent compliance notifications to 10 major VPN services with servers inside Russia — NordVPN, ExpressVPN, TorGuard, IPVanish, VPN Unlimited, VyprVPN, Kaspersky Secure Connection, HideMyAss!, Hola VPN, and OpenVPN. The government agency is demanding that the affected services begin interfacing with the FGIS database, blocking the sites listed within. Several other local companies — search giant Yandex, Sputnik, Mail.ru, and Rambler — are already connected to the database and filtering as required.
