Looks like a good advertisement for JD. "We defeated the enemy with our wonderful technology". When you just imagine the servers that Telegram has to store all the cache of your chats + all the channels content, I doubt that Russia is such a prehistoric country, technologically speaking, that they couldn't bypass such JD's remote lock. And I'm quite sure that, if in a few weeks, so-called Russian hackers would cyber attack western Internet, then there would be no problem saying they have the best hackers in the world. All these news are manipulated and press has no problem saying one thing and its opposite.
