Roskomnadzor is not ready to lock Telegram messenger «tomorrow», but while waiting for the response from the service Creator Pavel Durov measured in days, reported in an interview to the program «week» on NTV, the head of Department Alexander Zharov.

Friday morning on the Agency’s website posted the appeal Zharov, in which he urged the team and personally Durov Telegram to fulfill the Russian legislation, providing information for inclusion in the register of the organizers of disseminating information. Zharov pointed out that the time to fulfil the requirements of the Department remains a little, and in case of further ignoring the messenger will be blocked on the territory of the Russian Federation. Durov said in response that blocking this neutral to Russia service is not in the interests of the country, as other messengers like Whatsapp or Facebook Messenger is controlled by the United States. A clear answer on whether Telegram will provide the information requested to avoid blocking the service in Russia, the Ministry has not received.

«We use the last possibility of communication and dialogue. I can’t say that we are ready to block the Telegram tomorrow, but I repeat that time is limited, it is measured in days, and we’ll these days to wait for the answer of Pavel Durov,» said Zharov, speaking on the pessimistic scenario.

According to Zharova, if the answer Durov Roskomnadzor ready to bring Telegram messenger to the registry of the organizers of disseminating information. «The optimistic option — he responds, we bring Telegram messenger to the registry of the organizers of the dissemination of information, and the work of Roskomnadzor ends. Pavel has demonstrated that he is willing to work in the Russian legal field, well, until all» — said the head of Department.

As explained Zharov, intelligence agencies have repeatedly signaled that the Telegram is if not the main, one of the main communication channels for terrorists. «They are in the course of investigations, as saying intelligence agencies confirm that when they prepare the attack, they prepare via Telegram, and during the attacks are also being coordinated through Telegram. What is the reason? The information inside the Telegram is encrypted, and to penetrate it instantly in the absence of keys to decrypt that information to any intelligence service has not succeeded – it is very difficult. And, accordingly, the reluctance of Mr. Durov to provide the keys to this information all the intelligence agencies of the world, as far as I know, this is so, terrorists have continued to kill with impunity people using this channel of communications,» he said.

According to Zharov, founder of Telegram service «consistently and systematically demonstrates legal nihilism» and social network «Vkontakte» it was originally created as the «brand pirate».

«You have to understand that «Vkontakte» we have the most popular online, and they are used by tens of millions of people. Namely Vkontakte and Telegram, so to speak, «flew», that is, it has gained millions of users, but it is said that, jeopardizing the lives of millions of people, oblivious that the result of your actions and unwillingness to comply with the laws of any country tens of millions of citizens worldwide who use your products lose it is absolutely voluntarist position, which is very difficult to understand if you are a big businessman,» — said the head of Roskomnadzor.
