Blocking of Telegram in Russia

Blocking access to Telegram in Russia / From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The blocking of Telegram in Russia is the process of restricting access to Telegram messenger on the territory of the Russian Federation. The technical process of this restriction began on April 16, 2018.[1] The blocking led to interruptions in the operation of many third-party services, but practically did not affect the availability of Telegram in Russia. It was officially unblocked on June 19, 2020.[citation needed]
