Zoom Video Communications in the United States commented on information that appeared in the media about the restriction of sales of the service to Russian government agencies. This was announced on Tuesday, April 6, by TASS with reference to the press service of the company.
This information, presumably, was disseminated in the media due to the partner agency of the company.
“It seems that (this information – Ed.) Is based on a message from one of the agencies involved in selling on an affiliate basis,” – said a spokesman for Zoom.
At the moment, the company is conducting an audit in connection with the dissemination of inaccurate data and, as a result of it, will be ready to publish the findings.
In turn, Kommersant has already reported that Zoom has banned the sale of access to the online conference service in Russia and the CIS for state-owned companies and institutions.
Earlier in March, it became known that Digital Education, a joint venture between Mail.ru Group and Rostelecom, had launched an analogue to the Zoom platform for Russian schoolchildren – the video-conferencing platform Spherum.
The “Spherum” project provides its users with the opportunity to conduct not only video conference calls, but also exchange videos, photos, presentations through special chats.
