In 2016, the list of prohibited posting of information that Roskomnadzor will be able to block without a court decision, will expand. Apart from extremism, child pornography, etc. it will include the resources involved in the illegal sale of alcohol. According rosalkogolregulirovaniya (PAP), after the final connection from 1 July retail trade to the system of USAIS began the process flow of counterfeit alcohol from stores in the Global network.
In Russia, almost 10 years a ban on the remote sale of alcohol, including through the Internet. While all this was regulated by a special government decree, the restrictions actually worked. First, the liability of the owners of such resources was close to zero, and to calculate them was extremely difficult. Second, to enter the lock had through the courts, and this process is very troublesome and costly, occupying 8-10 months at least.
Most people buy alcohol on the Internet in the two cases. At night, when the stores are closed, and fans to chase the cheapness. They acquire “luxury” spirits, which in the best case harmless “samopal”.
About 30 billion rubles, or 22.5%, is the estimate of illegal share of strong alcoholic products in our country, released RAR at the end of last year. Under illegal means not only pure counterfeiting, but alcohol produced in the official capacity, but fell in retail through the “back porch”, sometimes using fake excise stamps. Given the high cost of excise taxes on alcohol, many businessmen go to shady schemes to get more margin.
In early July of 2016 entered into force amendments to the law “On state regulation of production and turnover of alcoholic products…”, completely banning remote trade in alcohol. Restrictions do not apply to sales upon provision of catering service through mini-bars in hotel rooms.
If earlier the amount of “virtual” sales did not exceed 1%, now this figure has increased. At least in June 2016 on the Internet marked by a sharp increase in the number of such sites.
The official representative of Roscomnadzor Vadim Ampelonskiy said “MK”, that today the Internet portals dealing with trade in alcohol, not included in the list of categories of illegal information, the lock of which is carried out extrajudicially. They can be included in the unified register of prohibited information only on the basis of a court decision. “The law provides for five positions that result in the extrajudicial lock, — said the official. — Child pornography (this content is recognized illegal the Russian Federation, suicide, drugs (MVD), gambling (tax), as well as extremist materials (PGO). Blocking occurs only if the site owner or hosting provider does not voluntarily remove the prohibited information within three days. The extremism has a special procedure for limiting access, such sites should be blocked “immediately” after receipt of the request from the Prosecutor General”.
In the near future the government will be determined with the competent authority, who will monitor illegal alcoholic content. They may be Identified. In Rare confirmed this information, saying that in accordance with the road map,” the entire regulatory framework is likely to develop this year. In addition, there will be made amendments to the law “On information, Informatization and protection of inclusion in the list allocaiton illegal.
In the spring of this year, the Deputy Chairman of the Duma Committee on economic policy Victor Zvagelsky proposed amendments legalizing alcohol with entrepreneurs issuing special licenses. However, the government did not support it, on the contrary, the more stringent rules. Thus, the virtual selling vodka in the end still equated to extremism and paedophilia.Related posts:
