Belgian intelligence reported that terrorist organizations increasingly began to use the Telegram messenger to spread propaganda.
This is stated in the annual report of counterintelligence VSSE. The document notes that «for several years companies such as Twitter, Facebook and YouTube, have begun to respond to these messages and quickly delete them.»
As noted by intelligence agencies, these actions resulted in a partial displacement of the propaganda of the terrorists in the «more closed environment applications to exchange messages, such as Telegram».
Earlier the Director of FSB Alexander Bortnikov said that the international terrorists are increasingly using instant messengers, providing a high degree of cryptographic protection for data in transit.
