So, apparently the Russians decided to block WeChat and LINE (those are messengers that I personally use on a regular basis), as well as a bunch of other messengers and services that I'm not too familiar with.
Bravo! Looks like they've decided to go the way of China (but from the looks of it, their ultimate role model is none other than North Korea!), building up their own version of the Great Firewall (let's just call it e-Curtain).
Might have to jump ship earlier than I planned, seeing as this place's descent into a totalitarian sh*thole is accelerating at an alarming pace.
