It's one consequence of the ongoing censorship. The censors have driven dissenting views and fringe groups underground and they are now thriving underground. One can't blame them IMO.

Blaming Telegram for cybercrime is like blaming "insert car manufacturer" for the backup vehicle hijacker used.

99.99% people using Telegram, aren't using it for criminal activity.

100%. It's like blaming the municipality because criminals drive on the roads and the municipality maintains the roads, so therefore the municipality is to blame for crime. Or blaming the cellphone networks because criminals use their networks to make phone calls. Criminals are going to be criminals, it's the job of the police to catch them, not whatever service providers criminals happen to use.

These goons probably look at firemen and wonder if they like to start fires their own can respond to
