Telegram Messenger in the dark as to why fines in Russia were dropped

“Telegram Messenger said it does not know why fines against it and other major technology companies were dropped in Russia, but said it has no assets, offices or employees there.”

Well Russia can’t be paid due to sanctions.


the fines may have been terminated as bailiffs were unable to locate assets that could be forcibly seized.

Looks like Russia gave up because they have no access to the Telegram company as it’s apparently not based in Russia.
