Roskomnadzor exceeded its authority

This is stated in the objection of the supervisory authority in the proceedings on the suit, which is considered in the Tagansky court in Moscow, they write Vedomosti.

The claim against the Prosecutor General’s Office and the Roskomnadzor was filed by LLC “Live Photography”. The applicant, the owner of the site posterslegends.com, who was blocked in the fight against Telegram, is trying to obtain recognition of the actions of Roskondrazor as illegal.

According to official data, the decision to block the site was taken on the basis of the order of the Prosecutor General’s Office of April 16. But the document that went to court from the prosecutor’s office says that in the request of the department to stop blocking the IP address, the plaintiff was not talking about restricting access to seven accounts of the messenger, which propagandize terrorist organizations banned in Russia, as well as to four pages to bypass locks. The decision of the prosecutor’s office was also allowed to block sites on which information from the resources to be blocked was copied.

The decision to block Telegram in Russia was made on April 16. A few days before, on April 13, the Tagansky court allowed to restrict access to the messenger because of its refusal to provide the FSB with information to decrypt user correspondence.

To circumvent the blockages Telegram used the addresses of Amazon, Google and other hosting providers, and Roskomnadzor eventually entered into the registry of prohibited millions of pages that used the same addresses. This led to the failure of the Runet.
