Russia's state communications watchdog threatened Friday to ban the Telegram messaging app, saying the company behind the service had failed to submit company details for registration.Durov, who has previously refused to bow to government regulation that would compromise the privacy of users, called the threat "paradoxical" on one of his social media accounts.He said it would force users, including "high-ranking Russian officials" to communicate via apps based in the United States like WhatsApp.The 32-year-old had previously created Russia's popular VKontakte social media site, before founding Telegram in the United States.Since January 1, Internet companies are required to store all users' personal data at data centres in Russia and provide it to the authorities on demand.
