Russia’s internet watchdog, ‘Roskomnadzor’, has announced the ban of six more VPN products, bringing the total number to 15.

“As required by response regulations, please be informed about the pending centralized control of means used to bypass restrictions on access to information prohibited by law,” Roskomnadzor said.

The service has asked enterprises and entities to notify the Center for Monitoring and Management of Public Communication Networks (TsMU) about using VPN services (Betternet, Lantern, X-VPN, Cloudflare WARP, Tachyon VPN and PrivateTunnel) in their operations.
