Russian Communication Regulator “Роскомнадзор” has limited some of Google and Amazon IP addresses by executing the court decision to block the Telegram application in Russia.
Роскомнадзор has begun to enforce the decision to block access to the telegram after the company refused to hand over the keys to decrypting users messages to the Federal Security Service.
Telegram is owned by Russian developer Pavel Durov who declined to provide security data and announced that the application would continue to operate despite a court ban.
Роскомнадзор explained to Interfax that they blocked some of Google and Amazon servers because they believe Telegram uses them to circumvent the ban.
Subsequently, dozens of Russian e-commerce sites reported problems with their services.
