MOSCOW, January 14. /TASS/. Google ignores inquiries of the Russian special services on cooperation in the fight against crime and the protection of citizens’ personal data, Russian presidential adviser on the Internet and creator of the Liveinternet portal German Klimenko told the Rossiya 24 TV channel.
"As a rule, Google responds to 32,000 queries per year from the FBI or NSA and to one request from our law enforcement agencies. We have to admit honestly that they do not reply to our queries, they just ignore them," Klimenko said.
Besides, YouTube rarely follows the requirements of (Russia’s media watchdog) Roskomnadzor to delete information that contravenes Russia’s legislation. "Occasionally they do us a favor," he noted.
According to Klimenko, criminals are using foreign online resources more often, since Russian IT-companies and resources cooperate with the authorities. "This is even a slight competitive advantage," he added.
Foreign social networks and messengers should work in Russia under the same terms as the domestic ones, Klimenko said.
Roskomnadzor earlier said that it would conduct more than 1,000 checks of foreign IT and Internet companies, retailers, banks and tourist agencies for compliance with Russia’s law on the storage of citizens’ personal data.
