Magento stores, like so many e-commerce stores, are regularly targets for fraud and malicious traffic. Additionally, stores should not be using resources to handle traffic from locations they do not service or ship to.
STRATUS gives you the ability to block traffic from selected countries.
Russia is already blocked by default on all STRATUS stores.
To block certain countries from accessing a STRATUS install, use Access > Block Countries in the STRATUS Control panel.
