. The Russian government just told us () to stop serving Android APKs to users in Russia. Any thoughts on that? :-/

Presumably, they'd have the power to cut all traffic to the site if we didn't comply. They didn't go as far as saying that directly, but probably would in a follow-up contact. Russia has no jurisdiction over but at the same time, we wouldn't want to get blocked there.

If you leave it on, and *if* they cut your traffic, people will have to find a way around that to get to your site, for a safe-haven of known good apks they can be confident using. If you just remove it, you guarantee they will not have a safe place to get that apk...

or any others they may tell you to take down in the future. Seems like a non question to me.

Went to the RKN website directly and found the story there. Wouldn't comply with it. Order affects Telegram, not you as a US based entity that isn't Telegram and that isn't subject to any lawful compulsion to pay any attention to the Russians.

Right. The only downside would be a block to the site in Russia by the government.

What non-government-sponsored Russian and international news sites would be potentially interested in this? Feel free to tag their Twitter handles and editors here.

True, but let them. There's plenty of ways around a block. You could put up a post now about how to get around said blocks easily..

Hi, Andrey from here. I see your tweet with a notice from Roskomnadzor. Is there any notice about Telegram X?
