Russian Internet service providers (ISPs) have been ordered to block public access to LinkedIn following a court ruling that found the social network guilty of violating data laws.

Russian law, as reported by Reuters, requires websites that store citizens’ personal data to do so on local servers. But the US-based business network—which boasts more than 6 million registered users in Russia—does not do so, watchdog Roskomnadzor said

LinkedIn is expected to go dark in the country by the end of the week; one ISP, Rostelcom, has already blocked access to the site.
