Up to 19 million IP addresses affected in Russia after Telegram ban

Wednesday 18 April 2018 | 13:43 CET | News
Up to 19 million IP addresses are inaccessible in Russia due to the regulator Roskomnadzor's efforts to block the messenger app Telegram in the country. The block on Telegram led to many other sites being blocked for alleged links to the service, for example domains hosted on Google or Amazon, report local media. Telegram meanwhile remained live with minor disruptions, thanks to the use of multiple proxy servers around the world.
