The owner of the messenger Telegram Pavel Durov said that the results of the data of users suspected of terrorism, will not stop blocking the service in Russia. About this he said in his Telegram channel.

The businessman said that the Russian authorities demand from messenger not IP addresses and mobile phone numbers of the alleged perpetrators, and access to the correspondence of all users. Thus blocking the daily by the state influenced the principled stance of the administration. Treatment of employees of special services of Russia in the Telegram will not be considered. Durov also said that the changes to the privacy policy do not relate to the situation in Russia.

In the final treatment of the owner of the messenger called for continued resistance.

Earlier it became known that the updated privacy policy Telegram allows the administration to issue IP addresses and phone numbers of users by court order. The document should confirm that the user is suspected of terrorist activities.

The head of Roskomnadzor Alexander Zharov interpreted this move on the part of the staff of the messenger as a first response to requirements of the Russian legislation. The head of the Department welcomed the decision.
