OK, so I just installed an Ubiquity Unifi network in my home and am blocking traffic to Russia, China and various other places/apps.  Today I noticed my Sonos Boost was trying to connect to 82.142.168.18 which is in Russia.  Obviously it could not connect but concerned that it is doing this.

Anybody know why my boost would need to reach out to Russia??  Not very comfortable with the fact that it is attempting to communicate there.

fyi I live in the US which is why I ask.

IP lookup came up with this info:
