Durov has made a compromise. Telegram announced readiness to transfer personal data to intelligence agencies


The messenger has agreed to issue to intelligence agencies data on terrorists, but under certain conditions. As the lawyer of Telegram has said, it is necessary to find balance of interests of national security and personal privacy of the Photo: depositphotos.com the Popular Telegram messenger has agreed to issue to intelligence agencies by a court decision data of users which will suspect of terrorism. The lawyer of the company Pavel Chikov has reported about it to Interfax. Roskomnadzor, in turn, has emphasized that it will unblock Telegram only in exchange for transfer of FSB of keys for decoding of messages. The deputy head of service Vadim Subbotin has advised the company to enter with intelligence agencies direct interaction instead of making statements in media. Now the authorities will be told the IP address and a phone number in exchange for the judicial order that this user is suspected of terrorism. Telegram promises to publish information on such cases in semi-annual reports. According to Chikov, the messenger never denied the right of the authorities to fight against terrorism, offering such scenario — judicial inquiry in exchange for disclosure of IP and phone. In return FSB didn't offer anything, the defender has noted. Pavel Durov has explained new privacy policy with need to correspond to the European law on personal data. According to him, the messenger still refuses to cooperate with the Russian authorities. About it Durov has written in the Telegram channel. "This summer we have created full privacy policy of Telegram to correspond to new European laws on protection of personal data. In privacy policy we have reserved the right to transfer the IP address and a phone number of terrorists to the relevant services by a court decision. Irrespective of whether we will ever have this right, such measure has to make Telegram less attractive platform for those who are engaged in mailing of terrorist promotion here. Whether can lead this change to the termination of attempts of blocking of Telegram in Russia? I think what isn't present — for two reasons: 1. Russia demands not number and the IP address of terrorists from Telegram by a court decision, and something essentially other — access to messages, and all users. 2. Telegram is in Russia beyond the law; hundreds of IP addresses in attempts to stop access to service are daily blocked. In this regard we don't consider any addresses from the Russian services, and our privacy policy doesn't concern a situation in Russia. Therefore we continue resistance". How do experts estimate the consent of Telegram to cooperation with FSB? The opinion was expressed by the CEO of the Zecurion company Alexey Rayevskiy:aleksey Rajevski the CEO of the Zecurion company "Probably, it is to some extent a compromise because such hard line won't lead to anything, she brings problems, probably, to both the messenger, and the authorities. There are no losers won, both parties, both have problems. It is strange that from Roskomnadzor there were no publicly ANOs
