Industry representatives it was stated that the rule will put them on the brink of ruin and will make it impossible to improve the quality of services, since all funds will go to providing storage of information.

However, the meadow in his speech United not only social networks and operators, but added to the same row and the media: the politician said that “not a year passes, and some users will have 3, 5, 10, 15 million users”, that will mean that they will be the media influencing the whole country.

The accepted document is directed primarily against foreign services of this kind: in case of approval in Russia will prevent use of a number system, similar to the us Netflix.
