"The appeal board of the Supreme Court of the Russian Federation has defined the decision of the Supreme Court of March 20, 2018 to leave without changes, the appeal of Telegram Messenger to leave without satisfaction" — the judge has decided. At a meeting the lawyer of FSB Yulia Kostina has said that receiving keys of enciphering of Telegram won't give to FSB the chance to read correspondence of all users of a messenger, keys are necessary to FSB for processing of already available information obtained during operational activity. "FSB requested keys of specific users of Telegram, but not all users why then FSB will have an opportunity to read all correspondences? Keys are unique why having provided one unique key, we can read all the rest?" — the lawyer commented on a position of FSB in court. "As for concrete today's court, after receiving appeal definition we will study him and together with the principal we will define further legal steps" — Ramil Akhmetgaliyev, the lawyer of the "Agora" representing the interests of Telegram has commented on the decision. His words the representative of the organization has given RNS. In March the Supreme Court of Russia has refused to Telegram the claim to FSB because of decoding of messages. Telegram challenged the order of FSB of 2016 which obliges a messenger to provide FSB keys for interpretation of messages of users. Since April 16 Roskomnadzor according to the decision of Tagansky district court has blocked access to Telegram for refusal to provide FSB enciphering keys. The regulator has entered in the register of the forbidden websites IP addresses which the messenger uses for the work. The messenger has filed the appeal about the judgment, however it has been rejected. The head of Agora human rights organization which lawyers represent the interests of a messenger in court Pavel Chikov has reported that Telegram has filed a complaint to the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) to the judgment about blocking of a messenger in Russia.
