Bitstamp has blocked all its russian customers for no reason!

Bitstamp has been informed that the Russian government is prohibiting access to Bitstamp’s website for all of our Russian customers. We deeply regret this inconvenience, and will attempt to resolve this situation as soon as possible. All Bitstamp accounts remain safe and secure. We have not been officially notified of the reason for this action, which we view as unjustified. We are not aware of any misuse of our services involving any Russian customer. Bitstamp poses no threat to the security of Russia or its economy. Bitstamp is a recognized leader in operating a safe, fully compliant exchange. We are attempting to contact officials in Russia to determine why they have taken this unfortunate action. We invite Bitstamp customers – and especially our Russian customers – to let us know if you learn anything more about this action, or have specific questions. We do not know much, but we will let you know what we lea rn, as we learn it. Please contact us at [email protected] We suspect that the ban is related to legislation pending in the Duma of the Russian Federation. For more background, see: http://www.coindesk.com/bill-bitcoin-ban-russian-legislature/ The proposed legislation would broadly ban the domestic use of BTC, and appears to criminalize use of an international exchange such as Bitstamp. To ensure compliance with the new regulatory regime, protect affiliate service providers, and most importantly – protect our valued customers in Russia – Bitstamp has decided to temporarily block access to its website from Russian IP addresses until we can assess the situation with more clarity. Again, we regret this inconvenience, but we do not want to expose anyone to possible fines or criminal sanctions by the Russian state. Best regards, Bitstamp team
I am a bit surprised Bitstamp (with its Slovenia/UK jurisdiction) is so concerned about Russian laws, but it’s up to them, they may be paranoid. OK. But even so, their arguments are not valid. If Bitstamp is lost here I will try to clarify some things for them:
There is absolutely no reason to ban Russian customers from accessing the site. WTF Bitstamp? This looks really weird and unprofessional.
