The Russian communications watchdog’s Director Alexander Zharov and Google’s Senior Vice President Rachel Whetstone discussed the work of the US company in Russia in the light of the adoption of a law to store data of the country’s citizens in Russia.
“At present, Google works in Russia as an intermediary, which mostly handles advertising. The service has already been communicating with the company for a year to open here a full-fledged representative office. But Google reminds that it’s a US company and works under the US law,” the source said.
“Today the parties again discussed these issues and the new Russian law…They listened to our position and went to the head office to discuss how to continue working in Russia.”
President Vladimir Putin signed a law in July to oblige Internet companies to keep personal data of Russian users in the country. The new requirements will come in force from September 1, 2016.
