Роскомнадзор выступил против ограничений для VPN-сервисов 

Roskomnadzor does not support the possible introduction of additional legal restrictions on VPN services in connection with the Telegram lock, said the head of the Department Alexander Zharov.

According to Zharov, Roskomnadzor will not support the introduction of additional measures.

“No (not supported). All necessary powers are already in legislation”, — said Zharov.

According to him, restrict access to all VPN is impossible to specific and “achievable”. He also noted that Roskomnadzor doesn’t track you, but will monitor operators.

On Monday, Roskomnadzor sent to local operators for information about restricting access to Telegram messenger.
On Friday, the Tagansky court of Moscow has satisfied the claim of Roscomnadzor and decided to block Telegram in Russia immediately, without waiting for resolution of the appeal. In the Telegram refused to make concessions even in order to save the Russian audience.
