Roskomnadzor urges Telegram to delete bots gathering info on Russian servicemen

Russia’s telecoms regulator Roskomnadzor has asked Telegram to remove bots that collect information on Russian Armed Forces personnel.

According to the agency, the Telegram bots provide information about the soldiers of the Russian Forces who are allegedly on the lists of those captured or killed during the Ukrainian conflict. 

Roskomnadzor has forwarded a demand to Telegram to delete the detected internet resources. Furthermore, this information has been sent to investigative agencies to prosecute those who are guilty, Roskomnadzor said.
