In particular, the Rosetked news site stated that the VKontakte social network could no longer be downloaded on iOS, and the Durov Code resource drew attention to the fact that VK Music and VK Messenger from VK Group were also missing.

To date, not a single application previously published under the company’s main account can be found in the App Store, including the sound assistant “Marusya”, the Cloud data storage service, as well as the entire set of solutions affiliated with the social network (for example, VK Play).

Games previously assigned to the account have also disappeared from public access (it previously published most of the games of My.Games, the gaming division of the company). There are no more hits in the App Store catalogs, including such hits as Hustle Castle and Rush Royale. Also we didn’t find Love Choice, Zero City, Bombastic Brothers, American Dad! Apocalypse Soon and many other old games of the company.

Vladimir was included in the sanctions list of the US Treasury on February 22.
