Regarding the notification of the Russian Federation Roskomnadzor, Binance made the following statement:
“On September 24, 2020, we received a notification from Roskomnadzor that the Binance website was included in the domain name registration containing information prohibited from distribution in Russia. From the letter it appears that this is about the possibility of acquiring a cryptocurrency (Bitcoin). We have not previously received reports of any allegations or court decisions from the judiciary, as well as law enforcement and civilian government services. We have now consulted experts in the field of case law. ”
