According to reports, the ban is due to LinkedIn’s failure to move personal databases to Russian soil. Russia has always been concerned about personal data of citizens and companies like Google, Uber and Ebay have already moved databases to Russia. Roskomnadzor has already got court orders to this effect.

LinkedIn said in a statement, “We have today again requested a meeting with Roskomnadzor to discuss their data localization request and we understand they are reviewing this proposal at the present time.” LinkedIn said that the ban would create problems for millions of Russian professionals who use LinkedIn and many companies as well.
