Russian Federation can block Facebook if it does not fulfill Roskomnadzor demands

Popular messaging service Telegram went offline without warning Tuesday night, leaving many users around the world without a solution to fix it.

Online retailers, small businesses and the Viber messaging service were all affected as Roskomnadzor struggled to implement the ban.

The country's state communications regulator has said it has blocked 18 sub-networks and a "significant" number of IP addresses owned by Amazon and Google because they were being used by secure messaging app Telegram, which Russian Federation banned this week, reports CNBC.

Chikov reported that his Agora worldwide human rights group had received 73 complaints in 24 hours from online stores, texi services, language schools and other websites hosted by the Amazon cloud service in Russian Federation.

Telegram says the way the app is made means the service itself does not have access to the encryption keys.

The National Security Agency (NSA) whistleblower, who fled to Russian Federation from the U.S.in 2013, risked the wrath of the Kremlin when he tweeted his support on Tuesday for messaging app Telegram and its founder Pavel Durov, who is flouting a government request to cease operations in Russian Federation.

Facebook has until the end of 2018 to comply with Russia's data storage law, or be banned like messenger service Telegram or professional networking website LinkedIn.

But some Russian Telegram users report still being able to use the app, even without using a VPN.

"I have criticized Telegram's security model in the past, but Durov's response to the Russian government's totalitarian demand for backdoor access to private communications-refusal and resistance-is the only moral response, and shows real leadership", Snowden wrote on Twitter.

The Russian technology site Akket.com reports that the messenger has begun using a feature allowing it to switch IP addresses to route traffic through other companies' servers, including Apple, Google and Microsoft.
