Users in Russia are reporting problems connecting to Proton VPN and Lantern

Russian users are having trouble connecting to Proton VPN service. Its developers suggested that this was the beginning of blocking in the country by local Internet providers. Although there is no mention of this in the Roskomnadzor registry yet.

Currently, it is possible to connect only through some Proton VPN servers. The company is trying to solve the problem and circumvent the restrictions.

Almost at the same time, problems with accessing the Lantern VPN service, as well as the Outline VPN, began to be reported on the Web. A few days ago we had some difficulties with Windscribe.

Update 14.30: Roskomnadzor confirmed the blocking of VPN- Proton service. Representatives of the department noted that the means of bypassing the blocking of illegal content were recognized as a threat, therefore, measures are being taken against them to limit work on the territory of Russia.
