    Mail.ru Group launches Microsoft and Google competitor in corporate mail market


    Earlier, Mail.ru Group has already launched Myteam corporate messenger, Teambox cloud service for business, and Atom browser, which together with the new mail service for corporations form a single platform for business, the company said

    MOSCOW, April 17. /TASS/. Mail.ru Group, in addition to existing business platforms, launched a corporate email service that could potentially compete with popular platforms from Microsoft (Exchange) and Google (Gmail), the company’s press service told TASS.

    Earlier, Mail.ru Group has already launched Myteam corporate messenger, Teambox cloud service for business, and Atom browser, which together with the new mail service for corporations form a single platform for business, the company said. The mail service uses the client’s server, ensuring data security, and selects the best ways to process data in order to reduce the load on the server and save storage space.

    According to the company’s Deputy Vice President, Head of Cloud and Business Services Egor Ganin, the product was created on the basis of Mail.ru, the largest mail service in the country with about 100 mln users. "Many Russians have personal mailboxes on Mail.ru, which means that in implementing the solution, the company’s employees will not have to relearn and get used to something new, which will significantly reduce the company's costs," he said.

    Construction of a 12,000 km fiber optic communications seabed trunk line has been launch in Russia. It will extend
    from Murmansk to Vladivostok hugging Russia's coast. It will have multiple branches that will give the Russian Arctic
    and areas farther south complete internet coverage and secure Russia's communication infrastructure. Satellites,
    which Russia has been using up to now, do not compete since they do not have the density of coverage and suffer
    from substantial signal lag and line-of-sight issues (e.g. try using them in a mountain valley).

    This is the first of three such trunk lines. The second will link the EU to South-East Asia and work to survey its
    route is already in progress. The final link will be a specific one for the Russian military.

    Sounds from the video like this is a fully Russian project for both Russia-only trunks. It was not clear what
    sort of joint ventures are involved for the trunk servicing the EU. I would expect that it will be a joint venture.
    I think the fact that Russia is building a civilian trunk just for itself means it will not have any foreign participation
    since it could have used the EU trunk to do the same job.

    Russian watchdog opens administrative case against Google

    According to the regulator, the US-based Google LLC failed to remove information on Internet resources access to which is limited in Russia from its search engine

    MOSCOW, November 23. /TASS/. The Russian Federal Service for Supervision of Communications, Information Technology and Mass Media has opened administrative proceedings against the US-based Google LLC, the regulator’s press service told TASS on Monday.

    "The company is charged with the failure to comply with the requirement of Russian laws concerning non-removal of information banned in Russia from search results," the press service said. "Google does not remove up to 30% of dangerous content from search results," it added.

    Administrative proceedings were opened in respect of repeated commitment of an administrative violation in terms of failure of the search engine operator to perform its responsibilities, the watchdog said.

    Presence of data on Internet resources access to which is limited in the Russian Federation was found in Google’s search results, the press service said. The company did not present objections to the statement prepared by the regulator regarding the failure to remove Internet resources with prohibited content from search results.

    I hope the fines will be significant enough to make Google think twice of any future non compliance.

    BTW, Alphabet aka Google is very diligent deleting/hiding links to assorted piracy sites invoking the DMCA. Its routine
    hosting of links to terrorist websites in Russia is grotesque.

    Whatever happened to Russia’s sovereign internet law? Isn’t it supposed to address NATzO propaganda aimed at brainwashing gullible Russians and causing insurrection? The recent flooding of anti Putin propaganda across Russian internet space is a brazen NATzO influence operation. I’d like to see Russian authorities make use of these new laws to stamp out these poisonous NATzO appendages like YouShlT and Twatter angry

    Russia is full bore deploying fiber optics trunk lines on the seabed to enable sovereign internet access. Kaliningrad has
    been connected to St. Petersburg with a trunk line and no longer needs to go to EU hubs for access. Similar link
    projects are ongoing to link Kamchatka with more developed parts and to lay a trunk from the European part all the way to
    Vladivostok.

    Russia tried to organize countries at the UN to build a global internet infrastructure independent of yanqui control.
    But it was ignored. The fcuking yanqui bootlick losers! It will continue to develop its own internet infrastructure
    and the rest of them can live with their choices.

    MOSCOW, March 10. /TASS/. The Federal Service for Supervision of Communications, Information Technology, and Mass Media may block Twitter on the territory of the Russian Federation if the tech giant continues to shrug off compliance with Russian legislation to remove prohibited content, the media watchdog announced on its website on Wednesday.

    Twitter violates Russia’s laws refusing to remove over 2,800 materials, says watchdog

    "If the Twitter Internet service continues to ignore the legal requirements, these [enforcement] measures will continue in line with regulations (even going as far as imposing a block) until suicide incitement aimed at minors, child pornography, as well as information about the use of drugs are removed," the watchdog said.

    On Wednesday, the federal agency took measures to initially decelerate Twitter’s loading speed for 100% of mobile traffic and 50% of desktop traffic nationwide due to the social network’s violation of Russia’s legislation.

    The regulator specified that as of March 10, the social network had not removed 3,168 pieces of content containing proscribed information. It concerns tweets with information on ways of committing suicide, incitement to commit suicide, as well as child pornography and information about methods of making and using drugs. The regulator sent over 28,000 initial and repeated requests to remove these illegal links and publications.

    On February 1, a law came into force in Russia, which obliges social networks to independently identify and block prohibited content. Social networks are required to take immediate action to restrict access to such prohibited information. If it is not possible to independently assess content within 24 hours, the administration of the social network must send the data to the federal media and communications watchdog.

    Considering how zealous Twitter is at censoring sane voices (e.g. those that do not call for child genital mutilation), this brazen spitting
    in the face of Russia needs to be smacked down and hard. Let the NATzO fake stream media screech all it wants. It blew its wad
    and its credibility for those people that matter. Woke NPCs don't matter.

    Russia suspects that the United States carried out massive cyberattacks against government websites on Wednesday.

    "Direct threats against the websites of Russian state structures from Washington have been made more than once, including recently, so I cannot rule out such a possibility," Russian Senator Andrei Klimov was quoted as saying by Open Media.

    Earlier, The New York Times reported, citing officials in Joe Biden's administration that the U.S. was preparing a cyber attack against Russia.

    Russian users began experiencing difficulties accessing the websites of the Kremlin, the Russian government, the State Duma, the Federation Council, a number of ministries and Russian media watchdog, Roskomnadzor. This happened two hours after the Roskomnadzor announced that it was beginning to slow down access to Twitter, accusing the social network of not complying with Russian laws. Twitter is the sixth biggest social media site in Russia and widely used by opposition figures including Alexei Navalny, who was jailed in January on his return to Russia after treatment for a poisoning attack in Siberia.

    “Most likely, the attack was sanctioned by the U.S. leadership and could, in particular, be a response to today's decision of the Roskomnadzor to slow down Twitter,” said Klimov. "Every year our country is subjected to about 3-4 billion attacks. The infrastructure vital for the functioning of the country, such as the Central Election Committee’s website, are attacked. All these attacks are repelled, although it is not easy to do it," he explained.
