Synopsis

Created by Pavel Dourov, a Russian national, this encrypted messaging system is beyond the government control. Since 2015 Telegram has been hosting secure news channels that allow Russians to get information and debate on political issues.

But pro-Kremlin propaganda also insinuates itself on the platform.
