This morning, I struggled for a few minutes to connect to Telegram to no avail. First, I noticed that I couldn’t send any messages, so I hit the ‘Quit Telegram’ button.

Now, I can’t even connect to the app. As you can see in the screenshot below, Telegram is stuck in a connecting loop but nothing actually happens.

After a quick Google search, I found out I’m not the only one affected by this problem. Telegram officially acknowledged the problem and confirmed it’s working on a fix:

Our users in Europe, Middle East and the CIS countries are experiencing connection issues at the moment. We are looking into the issue and hope to bring you back online soon.

We’ll update this articles as soon as new information is available.

UPDATE: It appears that a power outage at a Telegram server cluster is causing these issues in Europe. Pavel Durov, Telegram’s CEO and founder said that his team is working to fix it from their side, but a lot depends on when the datacenter provider puts the power equipment in order.

UPDATE 2: Beware of ETH scams!
