On the website of the Registration Chamber of Great Britain appeared the legal entity Telegram Open Network Ltd, registered with Pavel Durov. It also says that the creator of Telegram has the citizenship of the United Kingdom.

The information in the register of legal entities of Great Britain coincides with the personal data of Pavel Durov. A Telegram Open Network is an abbreviation of the TON block system, which, according to the media, is based on Telegram.

In a conversation with Durov did not confirm the receipt of British citizenship and the registration of the legal entity TON. “Fake”, – the creator of Telegram reacted.

In February 2018, Telegram attracted $ 850 million from 81 investors, including financing a block-platform. According to media reports, one of the largest investors was the owner of Chelsea, Roman Abramovich, who lives in London.

In addition to Russian citizenship, Durov has a passport of St. Kitts and Nevis, which became known as early as 2013. The entrepreneur confirmed the citizenship of this country in 2017, but noted that he had never been in this country.
