This means that in the near future — two months — expert working group should make a decision on whether the initiative to be implemented and, accordingly, directed to the State Duma.

Recall that the authors of the petition are outraged by one of two laws “package” on the need for six months to store all user traffic. This load should fall on the operators, which, they warned, within ten years will deprive the state of tax on income from industry, and she will not allow to develop because of the huge investments in infrastructure, which can be more than 5 trillion rubles.

The authors of the petition asked the President and Prime Minister of the Russian Federation with a request to repeal the law, saiw also that it violates the human rights of the organization of surveillance of all citizens of the country.

Note, however, that neither initiative, which gained 100 thousand votes on the ROI (in particular, the requirement to ratify the 20th article of the UN Convention on combating corruption) support in the expert group not found.

Thus, unlike the website change.org to vote at ROI, you must be registered on the portal “public Services” and, thus, to provide their real identities when voting.
