Microsoft banned downloading Windows 10 and Windows 11 in Russia

Microsoft seems to be continuing to reduce its presence in the Russian market. The company previously announced

suspension of sales of their goods and services inRussia (including the direction of Xbox), as well as a reduction in investment in the country, and today there were reports on the Web that the tools for downloading Windows 10 and Windows 11 are no longer available for Russian IP addresses. We checked - when you try to download something from the official Microsoft website, it gives an error. At the same time, if you use a VPN, then everything works, which indicates that the block concerns specifically Russian resources. There has been no official comment on this yet.
