Russia to ban anonymizers in November

Within the last days of July, bill of banning anonymous proxy servers and VPN networks passed in the Russian Federation. It was signed by Putin on July 29, and published on the Russian State Portal of Legal Information on July 30. The bill will come into force on November 1 this year.

New changes in the Russian federal legislation shall stop the interlock bypass to the Internet resources banned by the Russian Federal Service for Supervision of Communications, Information Technology and Mass Media. The service will be responsible for the establishment and support of the Russian Federal State Informational System – a specific black list of network sources.

The Russian Federal Security Service and the Ministry for Internal Affairs of the Russian Federation will detect similar services and gain access to them. Internet providers are going to be asked for the information about lawbreakers. They will be given 3 days to deliver the identification data about anonymizer owners.

Then, the detected anonymizer will receive the requirement of connection to the Russian Federal Service for Supervision of Communications, Information Technology and Mass Media base within 30 days. Obligation to close the access to the banned resources shall be enacted within 3 days. The same requirements are imposed to search engines working on the territory of the Russian Federation.

If the resources fail to meet the requirements timely, they will be banned by the Russian Federal Service for Supervision of Communications, Information Technology and Mass Media. Look through the original document here.
