Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a law according to which sites containing materials justifying terrorism or spreading false reports of terrorist acts may be blocked until a corresponding court decision is made. This document is published on the official portal of legal information.
The same measure is envisaged for sites that sell fake documents, including vaccination certificates and PCR test results. The same law translates the unified biometric system into the status of a state information system.
According to the new rules, the Prosecutor General of the Russian Federation and his deputies now have the right to apply to Roskomnadzor with a demand to take measures to restrict access to information resources that disseminate data containing false reports about acts of terrorism, justification or justification for the implementation of extremist or terrorist activities.
Previously, an out-of-court procedure was envisaged for blocking for incitement to extremism, but not for justifying such activity.
Prosecutors will have the same powers if they find sites offering to purchase a fake document. Extrajudicially, it is also possible to restrict access to those sites that contain information materials of organizations whose activities are prohibited.
The bill, among other things, establishes the procedure and conditions for citizens to place their biometric personal data in a unified biometric system using user equipment. The unified biometric system itself becomes a state information system.
