MOSCOW, December 18. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia will work for setting up international level control of Internet abuse, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov told the Federal Council during Wednesday’s Government Hour question-and-answer session at the lower house of the Russian parliament, the State Duma.

“Our western colleagues are strongly resisting all attempts to establish transparent and open procedures of creating an international intergovernmental agency for controlling Internet abuse. What they are doing in this respect is impermissible,” he stressed, adding that the abusers’ goals were against international law and ethic and moral principles.

In this respect, Lavrov pointed to terrorism, child pornography and pedophilia in the first place.


“No illegal intrusion into private life”

Earlier it was reported that Sergei Lavrov urged to set 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.
