Durov is arguably the most influential person in Russia with his social network which is the #2 site in Russia, and now is launching a messaging app called Telagram. Durov is often in the news for pushing the envelope, including making headlines in August for offering Edward Snowden a job and in recent years not agreeing to work too closely with Russian authorities. Durov is seen as having the true entrepreneurial spirit, bringing innovation and openness to the world, regardless the cost.
