According to Durov, the Telegram team already dealt with the problem of displaying stickers a few weeks ago. He added that Apple is still blocking the messenger application updates. Because of this, its developers can not cope not only with the display of stickers, but also with the update of security for the new European standards.
The termination of Telegram updates on Apple devices, operating in all regional versions of the App Store, coincided in time with the blocking of the messenger in Russia. At the same time Roskomnadzor first request to remove Telegram from the App Store, which was later supplemented with a blocking of push-notifications of the service.
