Russia unblocks 3 million of Amazon’s IP addresses

On April 28, the Federal Service for Supervision of Communications, Information Technology and Mass Media (Roskomnadzor) unblocked 3 million IP addresses from two sub-networks of Amazon cloud services, as reported by online service which keeps track of websites and services blocked in Russia. The unblocking of sub-networks of Amazon was also confirmed by Roskomnadzor.

“Roskomnadzor unblocked three sub-networks of a number of foreign hosting providers in order to lift restrictions on access to good internet resources as part of a set of measures to enforce the court ruling regarding Telegram,” Roskomnadzor statement reads.

The Russian Federal Service for Supervision added that it determined which IP addresses are used by Telegram messenger and blocked them. The Russian Register of Prohibited sites now contains 14.6 million of blocked IP addresses.

Amazon has still refused to assist Russia  in blocking Telegram.
