Microsoft blocked Windows images downloads for Russia
  • Microsoft, without any announcement, has closed Russian access to obtaining images of Windows 10 and 11, as well as the Media Creation Tool utility. No comments have been received from the corporation yet, however, empirically, it was possible to determine that the detection was detected by an unexpected IP address and site language.

    The restriction does not depend on the provider and infection for all Russian users, problems are also reported on the coverage of the population of Kazakhstan, however, these were isolated cases of infection. To allow one image to be downloaded from available Windows, one needs to change the IP address, for example by accessing the Microsoft site via a VPN. In this case, it is desirable to install a different language of the site - any other than Russian, in this case this method may not work.

  • Not a big deal, just carry on the same way as before.... pirating it!

    Pirating has nothing to do with images themselfs. :-)

    Actually, this blocking is very unhandy.
