Telegram’s digital resistance in Russia will contribute to further anti-censorship efforts in countries like China and Iran, Pavel Durov says.
Russia’s decision to lift its two-year Telegram ban is going to mark the beginning of a broader movement to protect privacy-focused apps like Telegram, the company’s CEO says.
Pavel Durov, founder and CEO of Telegram, issued a statement in response to Russian authorities officially terminating the ban on the messaging app in the country last week.
