Russian watchdog lifts ban on access to messenger Telegram

MOSCOW, Jun 18 (PRIME) -- The Russian communications service has lifted requirements to limit access to messenger Telegram upon an agreement with the Prosecutor General’s Office, the regulator said on Thursday in a statement.

“We welcome the readiness voiced by Telegram’s founder (Pavel Durov) to resist terrorism and extremism,” the watchdog said.

The communications service put Telegram on the register of organizers of information distribution in July 2017. The messenger had been blocked in the country since April 2018 for its refusal to share decoding keys with the Federal Security Service.
