Russia order the immediate blocking of Telegram!
A court of appeal, the Russian has decreed the immediate block of the Telegram in the country. The decision comes after months of fighting between the Telegram and the Roskomnadzor, the federal Service for supervision in the sphere of connection and mass communication. The Federal Security Service (FSB) of Russia asks for access to user data Telegram via the use of the key. The social platform, however, has not accepted the request.
Tass, news agency, a Russian, has confirmed that the service will be “locked immediately” after the most recent decision of the court, and the ban will last until that Telegram will not give you the key required by the FSB. It is not clear how it will be “immediate” ban, whether it will be hours, days, or weeks.
Russia has passed new laws against terrorism in 2016, that require messaging services to provide authorities with the necessary tools to log in to the conversations of the users. Telegram has always opposed such laws, but now the platform of Pavel Durov was really put to the destination. The CEO of the service has not yet released a statement on the latest news, but it is almost certain that there will be an appeal.
