All prosegregation on Monday, Roskomnadzor sent to the operators for information about restricting access to Telegram messenger in accordance with the decision of the court. Also Roskomnadzor began legally significant correspondence with all the app stores about the removal of the Telegram, told RIA Novosti the head of Department Alexander Zharov.

In accordance with the legislation of the Russian Federation, the lock must be completed within 24 hours.

Tagansky court of Moscow on April 13 upheld the claim of Roskomnadzor about blocking Telegram messenger in Russia in connection with the failure to pass the FSB encryption keys. The court allowed to block Telegram immediately, without waiting for the decision of the appeal. The court has sent the decision to Roskomnadzor. Messenger will be blocked in Russia, yet will not give the government the keys to decrypt user messages, the court decided.
