MOSCOW, December 25. /ITAR-TASS/. A bill allowing to block access to the Internet resources promoting pedophilia has been submitted to the State Duma. It was initiated by Mikhail Degtyaryov, an MP representing the Liberal Democratic Party of Russia /LDPR/.
The bill contains amendments to the federal Law on Information, Information Technologies and Protection of Information. Mikhail Degtyaryov recalled that the law was amended the previous time in 2012 when a provision allowing Roskomnadzor, the federal watchdog agency in the field of telecommunications, to block the websites that contain pornographic videos and photos featuring underage citizens.
The MPs said however that the provision did not embrace all the forms of deviant information propagated in the Internet.
“Since the federal legislation makes emphasis on banning visual images - drawings, photographs and video recordings - and doesn’t regulate in any way the freedom of pedophilic speech and ideas, amoral texts and messages of pedophilic character are circulated quite legally,” Degtyaryov noted in an interpretive note appended with the bill.
He believes that the bill he has filed will prevent new crimes against sexual integrity of underage citizens and will limit access to the Internet resources used by pedophiles for communications and propaganda in the territory of Russia.
