Founders of Telegram are also founders of VK, VKontakte, russian
alternative to Facebook.

The question here is, how close ties has VK with FSB, and how close ties
have their founders with FSB?


I have no idea, but below are some articles about this issue:

This is also very interesting:

Unfortunately, I do not know a situation in Russia at all, I am just
thinking what *could* be a problem.
