MOSCOW, September 26. /TASS/. The Kremlin called not to give in to emotions in connection with reports on developments underway within the framework of implementation of the so-called "Yarovaya Package", as there are no specific results of this work yet.
The statement was made by Russian President Vladimir Putin’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov, who commented on media reports that power bodies are discussing mechanisms to decrypt and analyze all Internet traffic of Russians.
Peskov recalled that Putin, after signing bills of the "Yarovaya Package", made a number of instructions, in line with which Russia’s Communications Ministry is conducting active work with participation of special services, Internet providers, communications operators etc. "to define parameters of work to implement that part of legislation."
"So far, in my understanding, there are no specific results. All these topics are yet only shown in media during a very lively discussion. Much (in publications) is untrue, much goes to media an exaggerated form," he said.
"People should not give in to emotions too much," Peskov said.
"It’s necessary to wait until work is completed, until the Russian president’s instructions are fulfilled and until those instructed to do that inform the public in a relevant way," he said.
The package of anti-terrorist bills (the so-called "Yarovaya Package") provides that from July 1, 2018, telecommunications operators are obliged to store data about reception, transmission, delivery and processing of voice and text messages, images, sounds and video for three years.
The "heaviest" files - the content of messages, images, sounds and video - must be stored by operators for six months. They are obliged to provide all this information on-demand to security services.
In addition to telecommunication operators, the law also obliges Internet companies to store certain data. In particular, they will be required to store information about data transmission facts and data about users for one year.
