Roskomnadzor (RKN) identified in 2021 more than 980 links on the Telegram platform that contained materials with child porn, a representative of the RKN told Vedomosti. Among these links there are both individual messages and Telegram channels, the information in which the department classified as prohibited, he explained. According to the interlocutor, all these links were added to the Unified Register of Prohibited Information. But only 398 Telegram links from this registry were removed in 2021, including both materials added in 2021 and addresses previously included in the registry. “In 2020, 290 messenger links on this topic were entered into the unified register, 178 links were removed,” the RKN representative added.

Thus, the number of links in Telegram with child pornography has increased by more than 3 times, according to the RKN. Whether the number of such publications on the platform has really grown or the regulator has become more active in monitoring the messenger, the representative of the service did not specify.
