Meanwhile, Russian internet circus continues to go on. FSB asked Durov and his Telegram to give them encryption keys, he said "no", and, after some time of accusations and media fights, RKN (Roskomnadzor) started to block Telegram servers and proxies.
In fierce fight few millions of ip addresses were blocked, including Amazon and some of Google ips. There are reports about non-working sites (including some government-related), broken ATMs, problems with cash stands in supermarkets and so on. RKN promised than they'll continue to block more and more.
Ulyanovsk office of RKN got small fire today though, police said that it was arson.
That is actually pretty funny to watch.
