MOSCOW, September 04. /ITAR-TASS/. Yevgeny Fyodorov, a Russian lawmaker from the United Russia ruling party, said on Thursday that global web search engine Google allegedly conducts anti-Russian policies.
Russia’s Izvestia daily reported earlier in the day that the lawmaker was preparing to submit documents with the Interior Ministry and Prosecutor General’s Officeб asking them to check the US-based company on the alleged violation of Russian laws.
Fyodorov claims that Google recently signed an agreement with the Ukrainian Security and Defense Council and the giant web search engine would now be able to officially pass on to the Ukrainian secret services all the necessary information, including data on Russian web users.
Besides inspections of the US company, the lawmaker also proposed to force the Google branch in Russia into working in line with the Russian legislature.
On Wednesday, Russian communications watchdog’s Director Alexander Zharov and Google’s Senior Vice President Rachel Whetstone discussed the work of the US company in Russia in the light of the adoption of a law to store data of the country’s citizens in Russia.
An undisclosed source close to negotiations told ITAR-TASS that Google would consider storing personal data of Russian users on local server.
“Google currently works in Russia as an intermediary, which mostly handles advertising. The service has already been communicating with the company for a year to open here a full-fledged representative office. But Google reminds that it’s a US company and works under the US law,” the source said.
Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a law in July to oblige Internet companies to keep personal data of Russian users in the country. The new requirements will come into force starting from September 1, 2016.
