A few days ago passengers of different Moscow airports noticed that their ride sharing apps like Uber or YandexTaxi stopped working near the actual airports. It turned out that local taxi operators have bought GPS jammers so that they get all the taxi orders.

So all arriving passenger now have to take regular cabs again. Taxi union representative says that this is perfectly legal. He said on contrary, Uber and others are the ones who are fraud themselves – setting prices below minimum and taking all customers.

However many lawyers think different. No matter your can buy a GPS jammer on any Moscow market, it’s illegal to use it and even to own it.
