Russia asks Apple to remove Telegram Messenger from the App Store

By [email protected] (Swati Khandelwal) Russia’s communications regulator Roskomnadzor has threatened Apple to face the consequences if the company does not remove secure messaging app Telegram from its App Store.

Back in April, the Russian government banned Telegram in the country for the company’s refusal to hand over private encryption keys to Russian state security services to access messages sent using the secure service.
