The State Duma has adopted amendments to the law "About the Status of the Military Personnel" in the first reading. It is about photo and video content, a geolocation and other information of the Photo: Elena Afonina/tass the State Duma has adopted in the first reading the bill of the government of the ban by the serviceman to post information on itself and other military in social networks and media. In particular, the data allowing to open the place of service or to define department and a part (photo and video content, a geolocation and other information) mean. Writes TASS about it. The logic of the law is clear, but its acceptance can have unpleasant consequences, first of all for the military personnel, the member of the Presidential Council on human rights Sergey Krivenko:sergey Krivenko the member of the Presidential Council on human rights "Expresses fear the balance between providing a mystery of office activity, national security and the rights of the serviceman is necessary. It is a key thing, nobody argues that quite many things during service have character of privacy. On the other hand, in the law "About the State Secret" it is written that information on human rights violation can't be the state secret, can't be closed. And here is how here not to splash out the child, forbidding everything is total. The serviceman is in the closed community, mobile phones became the most powerful channel via which they informed on the problems: called parents, human rights activists, in prosecutor's office if something happened. It is total to close for military personnel and contract employees this opportunity, probably, isn't necessary, the current legislation even in a surplus condemns for likes and reposts. Of course, it is quite rough method which can lead to surge in violations in army". The ban on social networks will extend not only to professional professional soldiers, but also to the persons undergoing military service. Not the law is important, and how it will be applied, the lawyer Alkhas Abgadzhava:alkhas Abgadzhava the lawyer "Military service considers, anyway, assumes a certain restriction. We have many other problems connected with army, it is not the biggest. It is that case when I not that agree with the state, and I understand motivation. When excessively operate the word "safety", on this background frankly harm safety. Here it is absolutely logical, armed forces exist for protection, and the excessive openness in networks leads sometimes to disclosure of important information. Other question: in our reality where with the constitutional state the trouble, with legal culture everything can be hypertrophied, but logic correct". At the beginning of 2018 scandal has burst: the Strava company which has created the mobile application of the same name for fitness trackers has made "the thermal card" of activity of users at the expense of which it was succeeded to calculate an exact arrangement of the American military bases worldwide.
