Telegram Will Bypass Russia Ban, Says CEO
Last Friday, Telegram CEO Pavel Durov revealed that their application will be using its built-in systems to bypass the ban Russia had brought down last Friday.
Durov said on his VK page that users will not have to do anything. However, he cannot guarantee that the messaging app will work 100% without using VPNs.
A Russian court had already ruled in favor of the Roskomnadzor to ban the encrypted messaging service in the country, but the date of effectivity had not been specified.
