In the State Duma of the Russian Federation will consider a bill on the identification of email



Senators submitted a bill to the State Duma of the Russian Federation, which provides that only citizens identified in the order established by the government will be able to use e-mail in Russia.

The bill was prepared by the head of the Council of the Committee on Constitutional Legislation and State Construction, Andrei Klishas, his deputies Lyudmila Bokova, Alexander Bashkin and Alexander Karlin. Deputies propose amendments to the law “On Information, Information Technologies and Protection of Information”.

“It is proposed to identify e-mail users using a subscriber number on the basis of an identification agreement concluded by an e-mail service provider with a telecom operator,” the explanatory note says.

The authors of the bill motivate this initiative by the fact that it will allow “to significantly reduce the number of false terrorist messages that are distributed anonymously via email by users who hide their personal data”.

The bill defines the concept of the email service organizer. In addition to the identification duties, the organizers of the e-mail service will have to provide the technical possibility of refusing users to receive e-mails and limit the transmission of e-mails that contain information that is prohibited from being disseminated.

According to the document, e-mail services will have to limit the transfer of such messages within a day from the moment of receiving the request of an authorized federal authority.

Thus, the proposed bill is similar to the law on the identification of users of instant messengers. From the beginning of May this year, instant messengers are obliged to send inquiries to telecom operators to check the numbers with which users are registered. In the absence of a response within twenty minutes or information about the number in the bases of the operator, the messenger is obliged to block the user account.

Recall that Senator Andrei Klishas is one of the authors of the so-called. the law on sovereign RuNet, which President Putin signed on May 1 of this year, and co-author of the law on inaccurate information and disrespect for authority on the Internet. He entered into force in the spring. During this time, the police made at least 30 protocols, and the first sentence under this article was issued in late April.

It is noteworthy that Klishas, actively advocating the protection of the fatherland and its authorities from the hostile West and the fifth column, owns a villa in Switzerland, offshore firms in foreign jurisdictions, a number of land plots and mansions in the Russian Federation (one of them being built will be literally the largest home in the Moscow region), as well as collections of expensive watches, luxury cars and .. kennels for 30 dogs (real estate and land lots are mostly undeclared and could not be acquired for official income).

But even if the authors of the next legislative initiative are taken out of the brackets, it can be assumed that it will meet the same public response as the law on sovereign Runet, which human rights activists considered an Internet censorship tool, and even the manual Human Rights Council under the President of the Russian Federation stated that he "seriously limits the constitutional rights and freedoms of citizens" of Russia.
