As with other modern encryption apps such as WhatsApp, the keys to Telegram users' private conversations are held on their own devices, so the company running the service does not hold anything it can turn over.
The FSB asked Telegram to provide the encryption key for decoding messages but it refused, saying users' personal data is protected.
According to FSB, the suicide bomber and plotter of the terrorist attack in St. Petersburg metro in April 2017 used Telegram Messenger with highly encrypted information. Because of this, Russian communications watchdog Roskomnadzor requested the court to ban the app outright.
Obviously, this ban will be active until Telegram Messenger complies with the demands of the Federal Security Service. The reason for the increase in the number of users was partly contributed by the attention its recent ICO got across the world.
When we see Telegram banned in Russian Federation, a VPN will bypass that ban. In July 2016, the FSB ordered the messenger service's managers to sign a document agreeing to hand over encryption keys that would give security agents access to data exchanges on six types of telephones that use the service. Many government officials also use the messaging platform to communicate with media.
