Negotiable fines instead of blocking Internet resources

Negotiable fines instead of blocking Internet resources

According to the head of Roskomnadzor, in some cases it is advisable to replace the blocking of Internet resources with the appointment of negotiable fines - a certain percentage of the company's turnover. For example, such a penalty can be applied in case of refusal to transfer databases of Russian citizens to the territory of Russia.

 The ban on storing data of Russian citizens abroad came into force on September 1, 2015. In the summer of the same year, AliExpress, eBay, PayPal, Uber and other companies began transferring data to Russia. Facebook, for example, has not yet fulfilled this requirement.
