On Friday, a Moscow court ruled in favor of the Russian state communications watchdog Roskomnadzor in its bid to block the messaging app.
The instruction was issued by communications regulator Roskomnadzor in response to a district court ruling that Telegram should be restricted after it refused to grant Russian authorities access to its user data.
The legal action against Telegram was requested by Russia's Federal Security Service (FSB), which had previously asked Telegram CEO Pavel Durov to provide the agency with encryption keys in an effort to deter terror attacks in Russian Federation, since the messenger is believed to be widely used by terrorists.
As well as being popular with journalists and members of Russia's political opposition, Telegram is also used by the Kremlin to communicate with reporters and arrange regular conference calls with President Vladimir Putin's spokesman. Messenger's refusal to hand over its encryption keys to the FSB provoked the trial in the first place.
