We’re hearing reports of a number of Google services, including Search and Maps, being unavailable in Russia. According to a tip from a TNW reader reports are flooding in from “Moscow, Saints Petersburg, Nizhniy Novgorod, Saratov [and] Belorussia”. A quick search on Twitter seems to confirm the rumors.
We’ve reached out to Google and will let you know as soon as we find any more information. There is, as of now, no outage noted on the Apps Status Dashboard from Google.
