VPNs and proxy services banned in battle against Telegram app

Roskomnadzor begins blocking IP-addresses of Microsoft’s service Roskomnadzor begins blocking IP-addresses of Microsoft’s service Roskomnadzor began blocking Telegram a few days ago

Today, the Supervisory body has created another "hot line" to provide the Russian users with information about restrictions of access to resources that help the messenger after the ban to operate on the territory of the Russian Federation.

The post Pavel Durov: I'm Using Bitcoin to Neutralize Russia's Telegram Ban appeared first on CCN.

"Confidentiality is not for sale, and human rights must not be threatened because of fear or greed", Durov said, according to Interfax. The Russian government said the actions were taken because Telegram would not hand over encryption keys.

Pavel Durov, the founder of Telegram messaging service, evoked The 300 Spartans, showing off his ripped physique on Instagram, as Russian authorities are having tough time keeping people away from his brainchild. "We promised our users 100% privacy and would rather cease to exist than violate this promise", he added in the message, which was published on his Telegram channel. It was not specified which services have been blocked.

The move followed a court ruling against Telegram last week and a monthslong standoff between the popular messaging app and the Federal Security Service (FSB), which demanded access to its users' messages.

Iranian officials claim foreign platforms like Telegram represent a security threat and have called for completely domestic platforms instead.

Russian experts also warned that free VPNs used to bypass banned websites can be unsafe because they are often used by cyber criminals to get access to personal data.

"If the server is bad and malicious, controlled by cyber criminals - and such people are bound to turn up in this hype - then all your internet traffic can be seized, channeled to a dodgy website in order to collect non-encrypted data", Nikitin said on Telegram.

While restricting access to Telegram, Roskomnadzor blacklisted nearly two tens of millions of IP-addresses related to cloud services of Google, Amazon and Microsoft.
