Zoom Video Communications commented on the appealing reports of its refusal to provide online conference services to state institutions and state-owned companies in Russia and the CIS countries. As it turns out, the company is currently developing an approach to work in this region, but this will not be a hindrance for its further cooperation with private and public clients.
In an interview with RIA Novosti, the Zoom representative stated that the service would continue to serve customers in the Russian market and in the CIS. “We are in the process of developing our market approach. Meanwhile, new and already existing users in both the state and private sector may request the acquisition of Zoom accounts through our site directly, “the agency’s interlocutor said.
With regard to the media reports on restricting the sales of the service to Russian government agencies, then the company suggested that this information appeared in the media due to the partner agency. In Zoom, promised to check in connection with the distribution of this data and then publish their conclusions.
