About: Russia vs. Telegram: technical notes on the battle https://media.ccc.de/v/35c3-9653-russia_vs_telegram_technical_notes_on_the_battle
It is clear, of course, that an open client and an open server are different things. But, an open client is important, because it is this program that runs on the user's device.
About “Propaganda and psychological warfare” I think that everything is explained simply. If I had a military department at the university and there was such a specialty, I would have no doubt preferred it to all tank crews, rocket men and other military joys of junior officers. First, not to spend a year of life in the army, and, secondly, to get a specialty which in the civil society is at least somewhat useful (literally, an extra few courses of psychology). It ussual, at the end of the military department, people get the junior reserve officers, for example, lieutenants.
To consider Telegram to be certainly a safe messenger, of course, there is not very much meaning. Personally, I regard it approximately as “IRC with a human face”, which many lacked.Full automatic translation of the message
Unambiguously counting the Telegram is "the project of the State Department and the FSB" - the tinfoil hat does not allow me it. But even if this is so, then the success of such a project causes me only admiration. This level of quality and international cooperation for our special services is something that there was no news in the public sphere before. Unfortunately, before this any news was just a kind of "epic failures": facebook.com
