Torrent Freak has reported that Russian telecom regulator Rozomnadzor has begun blocking ISP addresses used to transmit private messages using the Telegramapp.
Repeatedly ignoring these orders, Telegram filed a lawsuit against the regulator and Russian government a few months ago. Data from the app showed several Kremlin officials had continued to sign in on Tuesday evening, four days after a court ordered the service to be blocked over alleged terrorism concerns.
Telegram says the way the app is made means the service itself does not have access to the encryption keys.
A court ordered the service blocked in Russian Federation after it refused to hand over its encryption keys to state security agencies like the FSB.
It would appear that a large number of Telegram's users will now use VPN services to bypass the blocking. Telegram refused to comply and did not hand over the keys of 200,000,000 users that use the platform.
Andrei Soldatov, the co-author of The Red Web, an authoritative account of internet surveillance in Russian Federation, said the campaign showed a no-holds-barred approach unconcerned with political fallout. Some Russian officials think so too, which means the government might hesitate to declare an official ban to avoid the embarrassment of Telegram users merrily messaging away despite their best efforts. "Once you cross the line, you can do anything". Russia's Federal Security Service is claiming that Telegram is violating its legal obligations as an "organiser of information distribution".
Telegram's lawyers intend to appeal the decision; however, the chances of winning the case are extremely low.
"There is a certain legislation that demands certain data to be passed to certain services of the Russian Federation", he said.
