Russian Federation to Block Telegram Over Encryption Battle

However, Telegram has so far refrained from breaking its encryption for Russian Federation and has said that state security services will get access to user messages.

A court in Moscow has approved a request from the Russian media regulator to block the Telegram messaging app immediately.

However, Telegram's lawyer Pavel Chikov said makes an try and stop the app being utilized in Russian Federation are "groundless".

"They have demonstrated again and again that the court system is devoted to serving the interests of the authorities".

Popular messaging app Telegram has become a haven for people sharing pirated movies and shows, in addition to stolen login credentials for services like Netflix and Spotify, according to a recent investigation by The Outline.

According to Vedomosti, Telegram now has a month to appeal the block.

"Limiting access was not the goal in and of itself". Meetings this condition would have allowed for a consensus. At present, in the Roskomnadzor's registry, against the number and the date of the grounds for banning, it says "Access is not restricted".

However, he said on his page in the VK social network that he could not guarantee users would retain access to Telegram without using virtual private networks (VPNs). "But unfortunately this consensus was not reached".

The ban comes after a protracted dispute between Telegram and Russian authorities, who insist they need access to the encryption keys to investigate serious crimes, including terrorist attacks.

"There are a lot of messaging services, Telegram is a very convenient one, we have been using it to communicate with journalists", Peskov said last week.
