Invasion of Ukraine: LINX to disconnect Russia from fast Internet


LINX disconnected Russian providers from the international Internet traffic, which means that there will be no fast Internet in Russia. There is no official confirmation from LINX itself yet.


The information comes from Express K reports, which cite famous American journalists in the cyber sphere.

The document, which, in particular, is cited by Brian Krebs, states that the London Internet Exchange Network (LINX) was forced to apply sanctions and the board of directors of LINX decided to disable two large telecommunications companies: Megafon (AS 1133) and Rostelecom (AS 12389).

The source letter from the internal mailing list for LINX customers states that the decision came into force immediately and that LINX will continue to check for other Russian customers who may be associated with the owners of the two above-mentioned companies.
