VKontakte, often just called VK, is a Russian social media site. It is the biggest social media site in Russia with over 500 million members. A full list of members was available here[IAWcite.todayMemWeb].

The barrage of sanctions and problematic situation following Russia's invasion of Ukraine is threatening its continued service.

On 2022-04-28, VK has warned of risks of service interruption due to infrastructure load[1]:

If the infrastructure in Russia cannot meet increased demand, the group's services could be interrupted, network or power failures could lead to data loss and a reduction in the number of users of VK services, the company said.
