Ramzan Kadyrov reacted to the situation with claims of Roskomnadzor to Telegram. The head of the Chechen Republic wrote in his Telegram-the channel that the popular messaging app will not be blocked.
Kadyrov confirmed that messenger will be available to the Russians.
“Telegram will not block. No need to thank,” wrote the Chechen leader.
The second sentence sounds quite ambiguous, because Kadyrov has offered assistance in resolving the conflict between the Creator of Telegram Pavel Durov and the head of Roskomnadzor Alexander Zharov.
23 Jun Zharov said that the Telegram will be blocked if not registered as a distributor of information. Durov refused to comply with the requirement of the Russian authorities. Nevertheless, on June 28 Telegram provided the necessary data and were included in the register of the organizers of disseminating information.
Alexander Zharov confirmed that the messenger Telegram “began to work in the Russian legal field” and provided all legally required information to be included in the register of the organizers of disseminating information.
Telegram-channel, the head of Chechnya started not so long ago — at the end of may this year. In it, he promised to share “their thoughts, observations and life experience in a more informal form.” At the time of this writing, telegram channel Kadyrov just over 11 000 subscribers.
