MOSCOW, December 18. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov calls for setting to rights in illegal intrusion into private life.

Russia “has an initiative, including within the OSCE, and we’ve started promoting it before the scandal with Snowden (Edward Snowden is ex-NSA contractor who provided with top-secret documents leading to revelations about U.S. surveillance on phone and Internet communications and fled from Hong Kong to Russia)”, Lavrov said.

“The initiative is aimed at confirming the right to private life. But it is being promoted stridently because the Western partners, who come against any restrictions on the rights and freedoms, show restraint in this aspect,” the minister said.

“In the modern context, amid the communications revolution and the sharp growth of trans-border threats, primarily terrorism, law enforcement structures must take measures to avert as many as possible terrorist acts,” he said.

“However, it is necessary to find a contrast between what is really done by law enforcement structures to protect citizens’ life and where they invade private life without any restrictions and control,” Lavrov said.
