  • On VPNs, an article in the FT - Russian tech giant Yandex’s data harvesting raises security concerns- https://www.ft.com/content/c02083b5-8a0a­-48e5-b850-831a3e6406bb

    The krux being that just as the US government can access data on EU/ UK nationals transferred to the US by google, facebook etc services, Yandex has a set of SDKs in a bunch of russian (and 'Ukrainian') apps that will transfer data to Russia, including VPN apps.

    I think the point being overlooked in the article is that the russian government its self is capable of making loads these apps that proport to be mundate utilities (call ukraine) that they can use to track ukrainian people and at least see where the civilians are, their movements etc but maybe even military if they are foolish enough to use them.

    With payments services exiting Russia will russians be able to transact with VPN services (and with the rouble down can they afford them)?

    Several VPN services are offering big discounts or even free service to Russian citizens.
