According to the magazine RBC, many state officials in the Kremlin, the State Duma, the Federation Council, and other government agencies are still logging into Telegram, despite Roskomnadzor’s ban.

Technically, this is legal, given that no Russian court has banned individuals from accessing the instant messenger, but it raises some ethical questions, says German Klimenko, President Putin’s advisor on Internet development.
