Ministry of Communications promises to “finish” Telegram
Although, deputy head of the Ministry noted that Telegram was a “great service.”
The Telegram Messenger will not be able to avoid total blocking in Russia. Deputy Head of the Ministry of Communications Oleg Ivanov said that the messenger “won’t last.”
“I don’t think it will last long. The state cannot afford not to execute its own decisions,” RNS cited the official.
He noted that Telegram was a “great service,” and he himself used it under a nickname in the performance of his duty. In addition, the Ministry of Communications deputy head said that he had accounts in all major messengers, but was not an active user of any of them.
