Russian communications watchdog Roskomnadzor said on March 7 that the U.S.-based social network LinkedIn had refused to physically place its database servers on Russian territory, meaning it will remain banned in Russia.

Roskomnadzor said it had received a letter from LinkedIn’s vice president for global public policy and government affairs, Pablo Chavez, in which the company showed “reluctance to comply with Russian law.”

“The company refused to comply with the demand to allocate some of the databases with the personal data of Russian citizens to the Russian Federation,” said Roskomnadzor in a statement. This “proves the company’s disinterest in the Russian market.”
