Will Yandex, Odnoklassniki and VKontakte be closed?

Will Yandex, Odnoklassniki and VKontakte be closed?
Дата: Tuesday May 16th, 2017

President Poroshenko signed the decision of the NSDC about sanctions against Russia. According to experts, popular social networks VKontakte and Odnoklassniki and the second most popular search engine Yandex fall into it, popular postal service mail.ru must also be partially blocked. ProGolovne decided to find out what will happen to the Ukrainian social Internet.

The Moral Aspect

 

In European countries, as a rule, only those sites that use pirated content are prohibited, thereby violating the rights to intellectual property. For political or other reasons, social networks are “banned” by quite different countries. Thus, after the ban of Yandex and Vkontakte, Ukraine will join a large family of not the freest countries: China, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Turkmenistan, Eritrea, North Korea, Iran and Turkey. Will it evoke the reaction of Europe, which is crazy about freedom of speech? While it is not known, we’ll wait and see.

User’s questions

 

The question is very simple – does NSDC know that Mail.ru and Yandex mailboxes are held by millions of Ukrainians? As for Yandex, it’s even more fun, popular in the country services of Yandex-maps and Yandex-taxis have not been forgotten as well. There is no exact statistics, but more than 20 million Ukrainian users are registered in VK. Obviously, the numbers of Odnoklassniki users are close to this. What should these users do? Forget about thier boxes or immediately master anonymizers?

 

Technical aspect

 

The decision of the National Security and Defense Council indicates the limitation or termination of the provision of telecommunication services and the use of public telecommunication networks. That is, Ukrainian providers have no right to provide these companies with access to their networks. Providers represented by Ukrainian Providers Association said that it is impossible. “The blocking of information by the provider is impossible,” said the chairman of the Internet Association, Alexander Fedienko.

 

Well, judging by its stupidity and impracticability, this decision is something like a loud Russian “Yarovoi law.” And I also want to remind to those who guard the “Internet frontiers” of our homeland, that at one time in the Soviet Union the US radio stations were “jammed”, but the United States did not jam anything. However, the latter survived in the species struggle of the two systems.
