#Apple and #Google have pulled the LinkedIn mobile app from their local app stores in Russia following the government’s demands to do so. The move comes after Russia blocked #LinkedIn ’s website as punishment because the professional network does not “store data on Russian citizens within the nation’s borders,” according to The New York Times. That is against Russian law. A LinkedIn spokesperson confirmed the apps have been removed. “We are disappointed with [Russia’s telecom regulatory agency] Roskomnadzor’s action to block LinkedIn,” a LinkedIn spokesperson said in a statement sent to Recode. “It denies access to our members in Russia and the companies that use LinkedIn to grow their businesses.”
