I dont know is this question more like reverse-engineering or cryptographic. Why governments are hunting for encryptions keys? Aren't they delievering by the network the same as the encypted messages? What doing it end-to-end encrypted?

No. At least not in the plain.
What doing it end-to-end encrypted?
The "asymmetric" encryption allows sending encrypted and signed messages without sharing the private (secret) key.
Very simplistically explained - each actor creates a key pair (with a public and private part) and the actors will exchange their public key. That allows both actors to securely create a shared secret even on an unsecure channel
