Dmitry Peskov allows possibility of dialogue with Telegram
Dmitry Peskov believes that legislative regulation should not hamper the opportunities for doing business, but, on the contrary, create them.
Dmitry Peskov, the Russian President’s special envoy for digital development, who was appointed to this post earlier on Tuesday, entertains a possibility of dialogue to resume the legal work of Telegram.
According to Peskov, now is the perfect time to start working together with the service owners on developing solutions acceptable for all parties.
"On the one hand, they will resolve security issues, on the other hand, will not lead to the final closure of this service in Russia (...) There is room for such arrangements, from my point of view," he commented.
Peskov added that the legislative regulation should not hinder the opportunities for doing business, but, on the contrary, create them.
To recap, on April 13 Tagansky Court of Moscow granted a claim to block messenger Telegram because of the company's refusal to provide encryption keys. On June 14, Moscow City Court found the decision to ban Telegram in Russia lawful. The further development of events hinges on the Supreme Court, the hearing is scheduled for August 9.
