@nextcloud Its not like Telegram have a good encryption in the first place. So why the Russians want the encryption key?

@ahmd_amsyr @nextcloud @UberGeek Telegram chats are not by default end-to-end decrypted, that's why

@nextcloud What is even more concerning is that they *could* hand over keys that would decrypt communications...

@nextcloud it’s interesting that apparently there is no central private key (they are distributed) and it’s impossible for Telegram to comply.

@nextcloud i really like Conversations with OMEMO by default - a decentralization/federation like mastodon and nextcloud, but you know it ;)

@nextcloud Maybe they'll go the LavaBit route: dissappear for a while and then come back stronger then ever whilst pushing for new standards.

@nextcloud

who would have thunk a government fond of centralized power would behave this way?
