According to Zharov, if these demands are not fulfilled, the question on the blocking will rise.

On April 6, Roskomnadzor filed the lawsuit on the blocking of Telegram in Russia. Earlier, the ultimatum put forward by Roskomnadzor to Telegram ended. Roskomnadzor threatened with the trial if Telegram would not pass the encryption keys to the FSB.

On April 13, the court in Moscow ruled to satisfy the lawsuit of Federal Service for Supervision of Communications, Information Technology and Mass Media or Roskomnadzor and block Telegram in the territory of Russia.

The law 'On personal data' came into force in Russia on September 1, 2015. It obliges Russian and foreign companies to provide the storage of the personal data of the Russians at the territory of Russia.

In the mid of November 2016, the LinkedIn network was put in the register of the law-breakers. In spring 2017, BlackBerry Messenger, Imo, Lime and Vchat were blocked.
