Russian Federation blocks Google and Amazon IP addresses in fight against Telegram

"Telegram's CEO Pavel Durov has been using the capacities of Google and Amazon to bypass Roskomnadzor's ban".

A Russian court ruled on Friday to block Telegram over its refusal to provide keys allowing the decryption of private conversations to security services.

In what is becoming known in Russian Federation as the "Battle for Telegram", state internet censor Roskomnadzor, with the backing of the Kremlin's Federal Security Service (FSB), is attempting to prevent the 13 million people that use the service in Russian Federation from accessing it via proxy Amazon Web Service and Google Cloud hosting sites. The ICQ chat service owned by is now being recommended by the Kremlin.

Some users are using VPNs to circumvent the issue, which many people point to as the reason for the clampdown on IP addresses in recent days.

Russia's communications watchdog Roscomnadzor might consider blocking Facebook if the social network fails to locate the Russian citizens' database within Russia and comply with Russian laws.

"If none of [the steps are taken by Facebook] or some of this is not fulfilled, or the Russian state is not informed of the intention to do so, then obviously there will be a question of blocking", Zharov told Izvestia daily.

Facebook could be banned in Russian Federation unless it complies with government demands.

Roskomnadzor warned Facebook of a possible blockade in the end of 2017 unless the company agrees to store personal data of Russians on domestic servers, which, according to Zharov, Facebook has failed to do so far. He also thanked Apple, Google, Amazon and Microsoft "for not taking part in political censorship". Telegram continues to work as usual.
