MOSCOW, January 15 (Itar-Tass) - Microsoft Corporation that owns the Internet call service Skype is ready to keep in store its Russian users’ negotiations, correspondence and data exchange during six months and share it with the Russian police, if necessary, Microsoft’s press office told Itar-Tass.
Microsoft thus confirmed its commitment to work in full compliance with the Russian law, the way it does in all countries of its operations. If any new law is adopted, the company will comply with it as well, the press office said.
A group of Russian deputies introduced a package of counter-terrorism amendments Wednesday that propose additional regulations, in particular, those in the communications industry.
According to the document, an individual or a legal entity that has organised users’ contacts on the Internet are to store information about the reception, transmission, delivery and processing of voice information, texts, images, sounds or any other actions in the process of information dissemination and/or data exchange, for six months following such actions and share the mentioned information with the state authorities, if requested. If the bill is adopted, the government will determine which data are to be stored and provided. Negotiations via Skype with a Russian user will be regarded as a communication service provided inside Russia.
