The State Duma considers bill to block e-mail users for distributing prohibited information

Members of the Federation Council submitted to the State Duma a bill to block users of e-mail services and instant messengers distributing information prohibited by Russian law. Now the law obliges the services to check the contents of sent messages and evaluate the legality, which is contrary to the provisions on confidentiality of correspondence.

In accordance with the new bill, operators will have to block users based on the requirements of the executive authority - this will make it possible to repeal provisions that are contrary to the Constitution of the Russian Federation.
