Slack starts to disconnect Russian accounts

Slack messenger began disconnecting Russian users from the platform, in accordance with international sanctions imposed on Russia, as well as the policies of its parent company, Salesforce.

Several businesses have been disconnected from their accounts with no prior notification or possibility to retrieve their data. It was also reported that Slack is not deleting data transferred by Russian clients, but that the impacted businesses would be unable to access it until the sanctions are lifted or the company’s policies change.
