The Russian government refused iPad

The Russian Government has abandoned the iPad in favor superseding tablets of the company Samsung, said the head of the Ministry of communications of Russia Nikolai Nikiforov.

"It's protected in a special way devices that can be used for processing confidential information. Some of the information at government meetings is confidential, and these devices (Samsung) fully meet these requirements and have passed the most strict system of certification", – said Mr. Nikiforov, the Agency ITAR-TASS.

The Official reason "replacement" called a purely technical nature, that is, supposedly, the policy is not satisfied exclusively by the technical capabilities of the devices, however, the naked eye can be traced to the true cause - the looming conflict with the United States, which indirectly confirmed one of the editions of the Wall Street journal, reflecting on the theme "the beginning of large-scale information intelligence from the United States against Russia".

Although, it should be noted that the Minister repeated that "this has nothing to do with the sanctions that Russia could establish against American Apple", but we should also remember that just a few days ago, Nikiforov said that "the United States themselves put an end to the use of software and hardware in Russian government agencies".
