In early may of 2016, Vladimir burmatov (“ER”) and Andrei Lugovoi (LDPR) introduced a bill, which proposed exactly what is written now in that same amendment to another bill – the deputies are its authors.

Changes in existing laws “On state civil service of the Russian Federationand “On municipal service in the Russian Federation”.

Henceforth, all persons who become officials of any level will be required to provide the employer information about the addresses of the sites and / or pages” on the Internet, in which the citizen applying for civil service jobs, posted publicly available information and data, allowing it to identify”, and over the previous three years. And then, while in the service, have this information every year (before 1 April) to update.

According to the decision of the authorities specially authorized for that officials will “process” the public information posted by employees on the Internet and check how complete and valid information these officials provided.

One of the authors of the amendment, Mr. Burmatov in conversation with “MK” explained that the citizen who wants to become an officer, it will be necessary to inform you on the pages in social networks, where he performs under his own name, and those where it is under a pseudonym.

“And what to do with this information, take it into consideration or not is a matter of leadership,” – said the Deputy. He is confident that the proposed measures will help in the prevention of corruption because it will allow you to better track conflict of interest: “To avoid this, that a man came to some position associated with the allocation of budget funds to certain companies, and then POPs up a photo on the Internet, where he celebrates the holidays together with the leadership of these companies.”

Mr. meadow, however, had earlier assured that innovations will help to keep track of, not criticizing the officials in the social policy of the government

It should be borne in mind that if the user can actually ignore the content of the pages of his subordinates in the social networks, then here is to ignore the “failure” to the above information, it has no right: in this case the citizen cannot be accepted on civil or municipal service, and already working officials must be dismissed.

The bill will become law on June 22.
