Pavel Durov commented on reports that the terrorists of the “Islamic State” use the Telegram message transfer service created by him.
The founder of "Vkontakte" said that he was aware that extremists use his messenger, but he does not feel guilty about it. Durov told about this at the TechCrunch conference in San Francisco, answering a journalist's question about whether he sleeps well at night, knowing that terrorists are using his design.
“I believe that privacy and, ultimately, our right to it is much more important than our fear of such atrocities as terrorism,” said Pavel Durov, stressing that members of terrorist organizations will in any case find a way to contact each other. .
