If someone with a Russian IP address tries to download the Windows ISO files directly from Microsoft's website, they get greeted with a message stating there was a problem with their request.


Attempting to download the Windows Update Assistant, Windows Media Creation Tool, or Windows 11 Installation Assistant also doesn't work, with users getting redirected to a webpage with an error message.


Users in Russia are currently unable to download Windows 10 and 11 ISOs and installation tools from Microsoft's...



Easy to get around with a VPN, but I'd still hate to be a gamer in Russia these days, or just be in Russia at all.

Annoying for Russians, sure.  There's plenty of other sites that host the ISO's too that can be found usually by a quick google search, or yandex I guess because Russia.  That's not the point of the article though, the point is that Microsoft is cutting them off.  Kinda interesting that a company is involved so heavily in politics. -_-  But its 2022, and that's normal now.  Yeah, Windows 10 is looking even more and more like the last version of Windows I'm running or buying.......
