The dispute between the Russian authorities and Telegram began last summer. At first Roskomnadzor demanded from the messenger to register in the register of information dissemination organizers. The FSB then requested encryption keys to access the correspondence. The administration of Telegram refused to cooperate, and as a result in March the Supreme Court decided to immediately block the messenger in Russia.
Telegram began to use third-party IP addresses to circumvent the blockage, including Google and Amazon. Roskomnadzor began to block them. Because of this, there were failures in the work of other services not related to the messenger.
