If a reference is no longer publicly available, should you include the proofs of the results you cite from it?

Yes. If you claim a mathematical result, you must provide readers of your paper a means to establish the correctness of the result. If your proof relies on other people’s work, the details of that ...

If a reference is no longer publicly available, should you include the proofs of the results you cite from it?

I am not sure what the issue is here. Anything can be referenced as long as you cite correctly (and, of course, don't plagiarize). For example, I have cited redacted papers in the past to highlight ...
