"It is simpler to switch off the Internet in Russia". Experts have estimated the bill of the Ministry of Telecom and Mass Communications


The amendments to the law "About Information" on blocking drafted by the ministry for "justification and justification" of extremism and terrorism can lead to violation of work of the Internet, approve media with reference to experts of the government. Whether really everything is so serious? Photo: depositphotos.com the Bill of the Ministry of Telecom and Mass Communications can lead nearly 20 million websites to blocking. As they say in the government conclusion from which excerpts are published by the Kommersant newspaper up to 19 million websites can get under pre-judicial blocking if the offered norms are accepted as it stands. The Ministry of Telecom and Mass Communications has drafted amendments to the law "About Information" on blocking for "justification and justification" of extremism and terrorism. As the working group "Communication and IT" of advisory council at the government considers, use of abstract concepts of the document can result in broad interpretations and abuses. "As the justifying extremism or terrorism can be qualified Marx and Lenin's works, the most part of both the Soviet literature, and modern domestic and foreign journalism and a fiction" and also any criticism of our reality, is told in the conclusion of the Cabinet of Ministers. Whether really everything is so serious? Sarkis Darbinyan is the leading lawyer of the Roskomsvoboda project, the head of the Center of the digital rights "Undoubtedly, the anti-extremism legislation needs pointed editing, change for a long time, and the fact that Mintsifra in the conditions of such legal uncertainty suggests to expand even more powers of the Prosecutor General's Office, of course, raises a set of doubts. From my point of view, the law can't be corrected especially in any way. The most optimum would be to refuse completely its acceptance because indistinct formulations along with already created opaque practice of application of the legislation lead to abuses, and we saw it. Therefore after comments of experts and human rights activists I hope that at least formulas of the law will be softened". Experts of the government warn even about one threat — possible decline in quality of communication because of mass blocking. "Blocking of such quantity of resources can lead to essential increase in route tables that can exert a great influence on quality of services of data transmission" — it is said in the conclusion. If 19 million websites are really blocked, the Internet can just be disconnected, the head of the Vee Security company Alexander Litreev:aleksandr Litreev the head of the Vee Security company "Comments when any Internet resource is blocked, his IP address is blocked, for example, and not one website, and several Internet resources can be behind this IP address. We will take, for example, "вася.ру", "петя.ру", "иван.ру". It can be three essentially different websites, but being on one IP address. And if to decide to block the website "вася.ру", then two other websites will also be blocked on the territory of Russia and will become inaccessible though on them no illegal, illegal content existed
