Restricting access to Telegram, according to the court, began in Russia on April 16. Telegram shied away from the lock, using the services of Amazon, Google, etc. as of Wednesday evening, Roskomnadzor has blacklisted about 18 million IP addresses. This leads to disruption of Internet services of Google itself and third-party companies. Affected about 400 Russian organizations using Google and Amazon, estimates Flexbby: they have failures of data warehouses, business applications, systems, artificial intelligence, geolocation, payments, cooperation with banks, customer service, etc. the Potential financial losses of the Russian business in case of continuation of lock in the coming months the company estimates $1 billion.
