MOSCOW, January 21 (Itar-Tass) - The head of Russia’s State Duma Committee on security and counteraction to corruption, Irina Yarovaya, argues the Internet violates Russia’s boundaries and sovereignty. Modern telecommunications allow the principles of national security to be violated, she told Itar-Tass at a news briefing on Tuesday.
“While we protect our country’s borders as any other country does, the Internet initially violates the terms ‘border’ and ‘sovereignty’. What is more, today’s telecommunication services make it possible to interfere with our independent national interests and to violate the principles of the country’s security”, Yarovaya said about an anti-terrorist amendment recently submitted to the State Duma.
The bill will help Russia’s intelligence services operate more effectively and will provide it with more instruments for the protection of national sovereignty and social security.
A package of anti-terrorist bills was submitted to the State Duma on January 15. The bills, initiated by Yarovaya on behalf of the United Russia party and supported by all four Duma fractions, broaden the mandate of Russia’s Federal Security Service in the sphere of anti-terrorist operations and impose harsher punishments on those responsible for terrorism in the Internet as well.
