RuTube, however, hastened to refute the above information and stated that in March the growth of the platform’s media indicators “was unprecedented.”
According to German Klimenko, chairman of the board of the Digital Economy Development Fund and founder of LiveInternet, traffic to the RuTracker website increased by 40% on March 6–7. Now this figure is 20% higher than in February.
RuTracker said that they observed mass registration of accounts mainly from Chinese IP addresses. The site had to ban access from Chinese IP addresses and from Russian ones (temporarily).
