“Atlas” can play MP3 files and connect to encrypted communication – but only through the network of “MegaFon”, which is the only Russian operator licensed for such communication channels. The Defense Ministry noted that “Atlas” encrypts voice calls, but not SMS.

According to the adviser to the president of Russia on Internet development, Herman Klimenko, to which Izvestiya refers, M-633C mobile phones are “not cheap, but the loss of military secrets can turn out to be much more expensive and even loss of life.”
