Telegram finds new way to bypass Russian ban
The messenger has bypassed the ban using a push and the servers of Google, Amazon and other companies.
Experts say the messenger has figured out the way to bypass the ban in Russia - Telegram started using a server push.
Under normal conditions, the DC_Update push is used to increase the speed of message transfer and facilitate the other mechanisms of the messenger. Rather than connecting to the now banned Telegram servers, the push uses those of Google, Amazon and other companies. The messenger gets reconnected to new addresses all the time without reporting about it.
The method helps Telegram withstand a complete ban, experts say. The web version of the service it the only one that is not working, since it does not receive system pushes. To cut the messenger off from the loophole, Roskomnadzor would have to block millions of IP addresses, making a ton of other services besides Telegram unavailable.
The blocking procedure started yesterday. Roskomnadzor confirmed that it had begun blocking Amazon IP addresses that the messenger had started to use.
Ismail Efendiev is suspected of exceeding authority in connection with the investigation of cases of detained earlier former First Deputy Prime Minister Ramazan Aliyev and nephew of the former head of Dagestan Askhabali Abdulatipov. Searches are being conducted at Efendiev's office and house.
The disappearance of an elderly Muscovite, who owns three rooms on Ostozhenka Street, and her disabled son, worried the neighbors, but the police refused to initiate criminal proceedings on their application. Housing in the elite area of the capital in the meantime was re-registered to a resident of St. Petersburg, who introduced herself as their relative.
