The American company Microsoft has banned users from Russia from downloading Windows 10 and 11 from its official website. This has been reported CHNews.
“The Russians have lost the opportunity to download their Windows 10 and Windows 11 distributions from the Microsoft website,” the report says.
As stated in the post, users with Russian IPs are also unable to download the Media Creation Tool OS installation assistant utility.
When downloading a Windows 11 image, the message “There was a problem with your request” is displayed on the Microsoft site.
Gazeta.ru editors checked this and found out that when you try to download a tool for installing Windows 10 or 11, the site goes to a blank page with the inscription “404 – File or Directory not found”.
Microsoft has yet to comment on this.
