Telegram has blocked several rashist channels related to Belarus on the iPhone, with a total of 80,000 subscribers.
This is stated in Durov’s blog.
Durov explains that the social network complied with Apple’s requirement for the iPhone/iPad.
The administrators of several other similar publics received a warning from Telegram that they were violating Apple’s requirements.
“Fleeing to other mobile apps will not help them avoid access restrictions because the other mobile app will also follow the rules of the app stores,” the post reads.
Durov explained that on September 23, after a repeated violation, the Russian-language channel was removed, which called for “cutting” and “shooting” unarmed people.
Telegram Baza clarifies that among those blocked are the Telegram channel of the Belarusian propagandist Grigory Azarenka, as well as the channel of the Russian sabotage and assault group Rusich, which published instructions on how to kill Ukrainian prisoners of war.
