    " Over the last couple of days multiple news sources have been
    reporting that Russia intends to start disconnecting itself
    from the global Internet, starting on Friday 11th March.

    " On the other side of the new "digital wall" around Russia
    TikTok and Netflix are suspending Russian services, Facebook
    and Twitter are blocked (at least partially) and major
    corporations like Apple, Cisco, Microsoft, Oracle, Samsung and
    video games like Minecraft are reducing service or withdrawing
    completely from Russia.

    " The web hosting industry will undoubtedly be affected by the
    cuts in trade and traffic, even more so now that bandwidth/
    network providers such as Cogent announce that they are cutting
    off service to Russia, the potential for hosting software and
    control panels being affected by sanctions, and regular payment
    methods like PayPal, Mastercard and Visa stop serving Russia.
