Russian Federation orders immediate block of Telegram messaging app

Russian Federation orders immediate block of Telegram messaging app

It acted after a Moscow court ruled last week that Telegram's Russian founder Pavel Durov failed to comply with legislation requiring the company to give the Federal Security Service access to users' encrypted messages.

Some Russian users are reporting that Telegram is no longer available for them after the Russian communications watchdog Roskomnadzor announced on Monday that it had sent notification to Telecom operators that Telegram access was being restricted.

The agency revealed that the procedure had been launched after its lawyers received documents confirming the ruling by Tagansky District Court in Moscow last Friday, which ordered a block on Telegram in Russian territory.

One of the leading instant messaging service companies, Telegram, has been blocked from carrying out its operations in Russian Federation weeks after a highly successful initial coin offering (ICO) which raked in $1.7 billion.

Telegram representatives insist that handing over of the encryption keys is technically impossible.

Durov who fled the country in 2014 said that the company has "the luxury of not caring about revenue streams or ad sales". "The issue of correspondents' right to privacy is on the agenda now", Chikov wrote on his Telegram channel.
