(MOSCOW, Russia.) JUST IN: For the last 24 hours Telegram has been under a ban by internet providers in Russia: The reason is their refusal to provide encryption keys to Russian security agencies. For them it was an easy decision: They promised users 100% privacy and would rather cease to exist than violate their promise #AceNewsDesk reports

#AceNewsReport – Apr.19: Editor says with 200,000.000 million users and counting Telegram is growing and their protection for their users is second to none: I have added on the post below our Telegram messaging, link for anyone who wants to contact over any news that needs investigation or publishing, or to chat over anything for blogging (please copy & paste) If you need PC Help or advice on software or security for your computer see note at bottom on all posts on what to do #AceNewsDesk reports

Despite the ban, we haven’t seen a significant drop in user engagement so far, since Russians tend to bypass the ban with VPNs and proxies: We also have been relying on third-party cloud services to remain partly available for our users there: Thank you for your support and loyalty, Russian users of Telegram………….Thank you, Apple, Google, Amazon, Microsoft – for not taking part in political censorship #AceNewsDesk reports

Russia accounts for ~7% of the Telegram user base, and even if we lose that entire market, Telegram’s organic growth in other regions will compensate for this loss within a couple of months. However, it is important for me personally to make sure we do everything we can for our Russian users: To support internet freedoms in Russia and elsewhere I started giving out bitcoin grants to individuals and companies who run socks5 proxies and VPN. I am happy to donate millions of dollars this year to this cause, and hope that other people will follow. I called this Digital Resistance – a decentralized movement standing for digital freedoms and progress globally https://t.me/durov/77
