The Telegram representative did not specify who provided the list and which channels are included in it.

In addition, Vaughn claims that Telegram is a safe messenger for Ukrainians and users in other countries.

"Telegram was specially created to protect users from Russian surveillance," said the company representative. "Our applications are open source and the encryption protocol is fully documented, so any researcher can independently verify its integrity and implementation," Vaughn said.

Background:

  • Analysts of the US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) have banned the use of Telegram in the workplace.
  • Earlier, Oleksandr Tkachenko, the former minister of culture and information policy, said that the ministry was considering some regulation of Telegram and was also trying to assess its interaction with the state.
