MOSCOW, Dec 8 (Reuters) - Russia’s communications regulator said on Thursday it had a constructive meeting with representatives of LinkedIn Corp., a social networking website it blocked last month over its failure to comply with a data storage law.
“The meeting with LinkedIn was constructive. The parties agreed to continue dialogue”, Vadim Ampelonsky, a spokesman for the Roskomnadzor watchdog, told Reuters.
LinkedIn, which has its headquarters in the United States, became the first major social network to be blocked in Russia under a new law that requires firms holding Russian citizens’ data to store it on servers on Russian soil.
LinkedIn did not immediately respond to a request for comment. (Reporting by Maria Kiselyova; Editing by Alexander Winning)
