MOSCOW, April 27. /TASS/. “Yandex” believes that restricting access to the Russian and global Internet services will harm primarily the Internet. About TASS said the Director of public relations “Yandex” Ochir Mandzhikov.
“Lock affected not only the messenger – suffered many of the resources and their users. We do not consider this situation normal. The Russian market can develop only in conditions of open competition. Restricting access to the Russian and global Internet services will harm primarily the Internet. That is the lack of freedom and lack of choice for users, we believe the most dangerous consequence of the locks,” – said Mandzhikov.
The company believes that this situation can lead not only to a drop in the quality of the developed products, but also to the fact that Russian companies will be uncompetitive in the future in the field of technology.

According to the newspaper, the list includes one IP address “Vkontakte” and “Classmates” five addresses “Yandex”, three Twitter addresses, five addresses Facebook. The list also included the IP addresses of the Amazon (14), Microsoft (29) and Google (33).
