Pavel Durov, the creator of Telegram, said that he twice rejected offers to sell a share of the messenger under the threat of blocking it.

According to him, proposals came several years ago from two funds from countries that later tried to block Telegram.

However, Durov, according to him, was categorical:

«The response to these suggestions was similar to my 2011 middle finger photo: We don’t engage in betrayal our users. We do not sell Telegram – neither partially nor completely. This will always be our position», – he stated.

Attempts to block Telegram were made in three countries. In the Russian Federation, the messenger was banned from April 2018 to June 2020. In Iran, the decision to block was made on April 30, 2018. In June 2019, Telegram was blocked in China

Pavel Durov “showed” the middle finger in 2011 to Mail.ru Group in response to an offer to sell the social network VKontakte. The deal, however, took place later.

Earlier, experts called the possible sale of Telegram to a certain oligarch and TON investor close to the Russian authorities as one of the probable reasons for the warming of relations between the messenger and the Russian Federation.
