Yandex.Zen has restricted access to content for foreign users

The Yandex.Zen platform has restricted access to content for foreign users - now it will be available only to account holders in Russia.

"Now Yandex.Zen will be available only to users in Russia - they will follow only the authors they subscribe to on the tape. With the volume of content growing and the context changing significantly, it is impossible to provide high-quality personalization in other languages ​​for users in foreign countries, ”said a spokesman for Yandex.Zen.

Also on March 5, the platform temporarily disabled the personalization feature of recommendations.

Earlier, the social network TikTok also announced that it was suspending live broadcasts from Russia on its video service and temporarily not posting new content to Russian users due to the law on sanctions for fake reports of a "special military operation" in Ukraine.
