This is huge. Russia’s unelected government is afraid of communications it can’t monitor, so it tries to shut down Telegram. Telegram moves to AWS and Google Cloud. Russia BLOCKS both services.

Almost nothing works in Russia’s internet right now. Banks, shopping, small business. …

@nextcloud I’m not trying to say Roskomnadzor isn’t evil (it totally is), but ‘nothing works’ is not true. *Some* banks, shops and small businesses don’t work, but many do. Not all AWS and Google Cloud IPs are blocked, only some of them. Ofc it’s terrible, but let’s not spread misinformation.

@nextcloud Isn't this also kind of scary? Look at how much power AWS and google cloud have over the internet.

@nextcloud Oops lol proves goverments have no idea what they arw doing when it comes to technology.
