MOSCOW, October 28. /TASS/. Internet must have its own ethics and code of conduct, believes the Speaker of the upper house of Russian parliament Valentina Matviyenko.
“All people should be aware of the responsibility for the content they spread,” she said in an exclusive interview with TASS.
“The Internet is being used as a cesspool for dumping every sort of filth,” Matviyenko said. “These days every person runs the risk of being teased, defamed and bullied freely with impunity, up to a nervous breakdown.”
“There is the law on the mass media, so we’ve got to use the one we have as long as we don’t have another,” she indicated. “It is very wrong to give the floor to people who are embittered, mentally ill, or morally corrupt.”
“The code should be adopted not at a level of one individual country, but be made international, applicable to the whole world,” Matviyenko said. “It must match the scale of the web.”
“That’s an issue for the UNESCO and the United Nations to address,” she said. “They are to set the rules and border lines that must never be stepped over."
