OREANDA-NEWS. The president of the American organization Coalition for a Safer Web, Mark Ginsberg, filed a lawsuit against Alphabet, the parent company of Google. According to Bloomberg, he is demanding, that a California court order the company to remove the Telegram messenger from the Google Play app store.
