What happened with Telegram in Russia? If you live in Russia and are unable to use your Telegram messaging application it is due decisions of Russian government regarding this service. Don’t worry – we have a way to unblock Telegram in Russia. 

Telegram – what is the problem?

Just in case some of you are not sure what is going on. Telegram is a free, non-commercial internet communicator – like Skype, Messenger and others. One of its great features were the fact, that messages sent through Telegram were very securely encrypted. This is something Russian government did not like. Russian authorities wish to have full control and access to all data and user details. All companies that wish to operate in Russia need to use Russian servers, on Russian territory. And FSB – Russian security agency – needs to have clear and unrestricted access to all data they will deem necessary/important. All services that refused to comply with this are officially not available for Russian Internet users – for example LinkedIn. You may also remember our article about Facebook ban

For months Russian authorities asked Telegram service for full access to encrypted messages. Telegram refused. as of today, 15 millions IP addresses associated with the service have been blocked by Russian ISP’s. You can read more about it in this article.
