since the meeting, the President reminded that Russia is taking energetic steps of the digitization of the economy and “life in General”. He asked the caller to stay on the actual subject of the protection of data of Russians. Vladimir Putin noted that the law provides nine components of administrative offences in this sphere. “As your Agency builds work in this direction?” he asked Andrew Lipova.

In processing the personal data of Russians arises a sufficiently large amount of problems, said the head of Roskomnadzor. “A lot of complaints. Over the past year growth of 20 percent, 43 thousand complaints were received from citizens,” he reported. In Russia, almost five million processors of personal data, mainly the traders, said Lipow. According to him, the problems in this area relate primarily to legislative gaps. To solve them – it is necessary to strengthen the punishment for offenders. “We have the largest fine of 75 thousand rubles for the leakage of personal data, rather, for their illegal use,” – said the Minister.

According to him, such sanctions commensurate with the benefits received by offenders. “And to the detriment of citizens”, – said Putin. His companion confirmed and identified a gap – the period of limitation in such cases is very small. “We would like to increase it to a year, because sometimes things just don’t have time to consider in court”, – stressed the head of Roskomnadzor.

the Next direction refers to the authority of the controlling Agency. Roskomnadzor, according to its leader, has no legal possibility to verify the entire chain, which sends data of citizens. “Very often we see when checking that they are transmitted for processing to the next processor and so on, – said Lipow. – Here, too, I would like to improve the situation.” The Department also should permit to check how the personal data are processed lawfully. On this too, should be considered together with the legislators, he said.

Another initiative concerns public data. The Ministry together with the legislators would like to develop a mechanism that would allow a person to remove information about themselves through the courts. In this case, a citizen, said the head of Roskomnadzor, will understand the following: “Sorry, this information is about my holiday… Even if I’m a famous person, it has nothing to do with information of public interest from a political or public significance”.

the Minister is confident that this mechanism is necessary because “those people who don’t deserve that”, should have the right to remove from the Internet “the information about themselves that is not important.”

however, he did not rule out the risk that there will be too many court decisions to remove information about Liu��s, “which probably don’t deserve to have some negative information removed.” According to the head of Roskomnadzor, it will be necessary to consider such moments. “Here we can, along with water, throw a baby”, he added.

what exactly is necessary to remove from the Internet is illegal information. Since 2012, Roskomnadzor has removed 1.5 million illegal material from the Network. Only in 2019, the Agency was removed 531 thousand materials of extremist and terrorist organizations and propaganda of suicide and drugs, child pornography, etc. On it employs about 800 employees in all regions said Lipow. And in the future Roskomnadzor intends to use neural networks to increase precision and coverage.

Vladimir Putin instructed the Cabinet to Fund influenza vaccination for 60% of the population. While vaccines in the fall and winter should be enough for 75% of Russians are at risk. You will also need to allocate funds for vaccination against coronavirus after the state registration of the relevant vaccines. The vaccination campaign will be necessary to hold free and no queues – it is the task for regional authorities.
