Russian Federation moves to block Telegram app amid TON ICO speculation

Court orders to block Telegram- immediately Court orders to block Telegram- immediately

But it remains to be seen whether the company will agree to any concessions to get the Russian block removed.

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.

Durov said that Telegram users in Russian Federation may be able to circumvent the ban using some of the app's built-in systems, but he added that users may need to use a virtual private network to access Telegram in the country.

After the April 4 deadline passed and with Telegram still refusing to share its encryption keys, Roskomnadzor started legal action last week. Earlier, the ultimatum put forward by Roskomnadzor to Telegram ended. "What matters most is privacy which is not for sale and more to that human rights should not be compromised out of greed or fear". Russian security services had demanded Telegram provide them with access to users' encrypted messages; Telegram refused on the grounds of protecting user privacy. Telegram is one of the popular apps in the world with over 200 million users in the world.

Telegram has also frequently hit the headlines over its use by terrorists, although that is more to do with its unencrypted "channels" feature, through which people can broadcast their opinions to followers. Russia's Supreme Court rejected the company's suit on March 20 of this year, and granted Telegram 15 days to provide access to the FSB.

Niko Kovac To Succeed Jupp Heynckes As Bayern Munich Coach
Jupp Heynckes is anticipating a "gigantic fixture" when Bayern Munich face Real Madrid in the Champions League semi-finals. The 46-year-old Kovac took over at the "Eagles" in March 2016 and led the club out of the Bundesliga doldrums.

Last June, Telegram and Russia's communications regulator Roskomnadzor seemingly found a common ground created to see the former continue to offer its services unhindered.

A Telegram representative did not attend the court session.

Telegram's lawyer, Pavel Chikov, termed the attempt to have the app stop being used in Russian Federation baseless. Luckily, Telegram does contain proxy settings which could potentially be used in order to circumvent the ban.

The Telegram messaging app is extensively by Russian Federation authorities, and is very widespread all through the Middle East. Reports have also suggested that Telegram's servers are used to store pirated movie and music content.

The FSB demanded Telegram share its encryption keys previous year.
