FBI Agents Tried To Recruit Pavel Durov
September 17, 2017 18:05


 The creator of the “Telegram” messenger Pavel Durov gave a detailed description of the attempts of the FBI agents to recruit him. The interview with the 32-year-old millionaire has been published by The Baffler.

According to Durov, the FBI got interested in them back in 2014, after the sale of his stake in Vkontakte, and the first communication with the agents of the US special services took place on the US border. The employees of the department were interested in his work.

After the launch of Telegram two FBI employees came to his accommodation rented through Airbnb without a warning: it is believed that only the tenant and landlord know about the transaction through this website. The agents showed him a paper signed by the judge and offered to set up a channel for transmitting information concerning specific users. He also claims that the FBI tried to offer several dozens of thousands of dollars to one of Telegram employees.

“Our developers are already millionaires. We pay them well, and they cannot be bribed by such proposals” - Durov told to the publication.
