The Russian Roskomnadzor (the Federal Service for Supervision of Communications, Information, Technology, and Mass Media) added the cryptocurrency exchange Binance to the blacklist. 

According to the announcement published on the platform’s Russian portal, the regulator concluded that the Binance’s website contains the forbidden information. Namely, the regulator cited information about purchasing cryptocurrency (Bitcoin). 

The company emphasized that it had never received any notifications or warnings from state authorities or law enforcement authorities. Now the legal department is consulting the experts to clarify the issue.

At the time of writing, the Binance website and services are still available for the Russian users.
