CNET: Telegram registers in Russia after ban threat

CNET: Telegram registers in Russia after ban threat. “After being threatened with a ban, it looks like Telegram is playing ball with Russia’s government. Telegram’s founder Pavel Durov has agreed to register the company with the Russian government, but won’t comply with laws that are ‘incompatible with the protection of [user] privacy and Telegram’s policies on confidentiality.’ Durov announced his decision on Wednesday via VK, the Russian version of Facebook.”
