Russian schools and universities are advised to abandon Skype, WhatsApp, Twitter and… ICQ

According to the Telegram channel Baza, referring to the relevant document of the Ministry of Education, Science and Youth Policy of the Nizhny Novgorod region, schools, colleges and universities in Nizhny Novgorod and the Nizhny Novgorod region were asked not to use foreign Internet services on work computers.

In the text of the decree, educational institutions “recommended to take organizational and technical measures that exclude the possibility of using foreign Internet services at automated workplaces.” The document lists categories of such products, which include instant messengers, email clients, social networks and cloud storage, and more.

More specifically, the authorities recommend abandoning WhatsApp, Skype, Twitter, Facebook (owned by Meta, which is recognized as extremist in Russia and banned), Google Drive and DropBox. Interestingly, the list also included the ICQ messenger, which is owned by the Russian holding VK.

Baza notes that in March 2022, the St. Petersburg Education Committee made a similar request. Then the recommendations were motivated by ensuring the cybersecurity of educational institutions.
