Experts and parliamentarians gathered many facts about fake news on the topic of constitutional reform in Russia — the number of “information stuffing” comes to five or six thousand. All the collected monitoring data will be presented today, July 6, during the presentation of the annual report of the interim Commission of the Federation Council for the protection of state sovereignty and prevent interference in the internal Affairs of the Russian Federation. As reported its head, Deputy Chairman of the Federation Council Committee on international Affairs Andrei Klimau, it is highly likely that by the end of the year, the members of the Commission and the experts will propose the amendment of various laws.

According to the Senator, in the course of the monitoring group’s work from March to 2 July it was revealed about five or six thousand of fake materials on issues related to the Constitution of the Russian Federation, the development and adoption of the amendments to it.

Andrei Klimov (Senator, Chairman of the interim Commission of the Federation Council for the protection of the sovereignty and prevent interference in the internal Affairs of the Russian Federation):

Information is disseminated in various ways, as registered as foreign agents including. It is clear that there is a need of legislation improvement, especially since the new text of the Constitution already in force, is intended to increase the state’s role in preventing encroachment. Hence, it is necessary to account for this act.

The Senator noted that today the members of the Commission offer a variety of options for further development of the situation. Klimov did not rule out that some proposals will be put forward at the meeting of the Commission on 6 July.

to Be released annual report, to which we may, something let. Our task now is to hear the report of the monitoring group, expert community, heads of departments. And about the legislative framework — I believe that before the end of this year something will be formulated, — the interlocutor noted

He also drew attention to the fact that it is extremely important in this issue to find a consensus with the relevant committees of the state Duma and other subjects of legislation. However, a priority which, according to him, the Commission is to identify “grey areas” that require legislative regulation.

Head of expert Advisory group of the Public chamber of the Russian Federation on public control over electronic voting, the head of the Fund for the protection of national values Alexander Malkevich, who will also participate in the meeting of the temporary Commission and will present the results of the monitoring reported that three weeks in June, it was revealed about 200 fake news from media-registered as foreign agents working in the Russian information field.

Alexander Malkevich (first Deputy Chairman of the Public chamber Commission ��on development of information community, media and mass communications):

Apart from the fact that there are specific interventions that we will give tomorrow, there is systematic work on the release of fakes, to create manipulating texts and headlines. Accordingly, I would like to have been given a legal assessment of this and that, how effective the law on the so-called media-registered as a foreign agent in our country.

The source he added that it is necessary not only to carry out monitoring and analysis of the information field, but to examine the enforcement of current legislation.

We will put the question that those laws that are not working need to fix. Talking about media laws-the registered as a foreign agent, an NGO-the registered as foreign agents, physical entities-registered as a foreign agent. Everywhere there are “holes” — he said.

In the opinion of Malkevich, a more rigorous approach to the issue of blocking unwanted resources running on the Russian audience, who are “subversive activities”.

Blocking unwanted information in a particular state is a normal practice. According to the Director of the Institute of contemporary state development Dmitry Solonnikov in foreign jurisdictions more than just.

Dmitry Solonnikov (Director of the Institute of contemporary state development):

Decides the owner of Facebook to deny any resources, references or even photos, which the company believes do not even fake and not relevant to their policy and forbid them to publish, and to block the relevant accounts in social networks. And this is done without the decision of any state authorities or legal proceedings, decided that it is impossible and forbidden. But if we are talking about public policy in Europe and the United States a large number of media, which, according to the leadership of countries that have not carried out such an information policy, which would like to see the authorities. And they forbid, refuse in accreditation denied status, the media and so on. The decision to limit the dissemination of information is accepted even without meeting any commissions, judicial decisions.

The source stressed that such a policy limits there is nothing supernatural, and Russia compared to other States in the East and in the West — is one of the most liberal in terms of information countries.
