Error 524 for Russian website accessed outside Russia

Hi all. Within the last 24 hours or so there is a definite issue with routing of traffic for servers located in Russia. Connection either takes too long or results in Cloudflare error 524. It takes a few F5s before website loads quickly. However, if I have Russian IP (VPN, etc) and try to access Russian server/website, there is no problem. I observe this problem today with multiple websites that use Cloudflare.

There is definitely something going on on Cloudflare side, but status page does not report any problems.
