The State Duma has already passed the corresponding bill. Personal communication promised not to limit
The State Duma of the Russian Federation at a plenary session adopted in the third (final) reading a bill on administrative fines for sending personal and financial information through foreign messengers when providing financial and public services. Recall that since March 1 this year, Russia already has a ban on the transfer of such data through foreign messengers when providing banking or government services, as well as when performing a government task. And the law adopted by the State Duma today, June 20, establishes fines for violating this ban.
For the use of foreign messengers in the provision of public services will be fined
The penalty for the transfer of personal data through foreign messengers when providing public services in accordance with the new law will be from 30 thousand to 50 thousand rubles for officials and from 100 thousand to 700 thousand rubles for legal entities. You cannot transfer payment documents in this way, data on money transfers for cashless payments, information necessary for making payments and information about accounts and deposits of Russian citizens in banks.
At the same time, it is not planned to limit the personal communication of Russians in any messengers, including foreign ones, as the head of the Ministry of Digital Development Maksut Shadayev said during the CNews forum “Cases: the experience of IT leaders.” The minister also noted that the Telegram messenger is still closed for online banking, and it is better to use Russian applications for this.
