Russia will ban VPNs and proxies - TechAmok

Russia will ban VPNs and proxies - [crime-law]
09:17 AM EDT - Jul,31 2017 - post a comment

We're used to hearing about China's continuing crackdown on VPNs, but it seems that Russia is going down the same route. President Vladimir Putin has just signed a new law prohibiting the use of technology that allows access to banned websites. The legislation, which was signed over the weekend and has already been approved by Russia's lower house of parliament (the Duma), is ostensibly designed to block “unlawful content” rather than place restrictions on citizens, according to Leonid Levin, the head of Duma's information policy committee. But, much like China, it's more likely that the move is a way of preventing Russians from viewing content that criticizes the government. With presidential elections set to take place in March, Putin wants to ensure voters can't see any online material that hasn't been approved by the state - even though he's widely expected to win a new six-year term. The VPN and proxy ban comes into effect on November 1, but this isn't the only new law Putin has introduced. From January 1, 2018, chat apps must start identifying users through their phone numbers. While some applications already suggest people hand over this information, it will become mandatory for everyone after this date. Additionally, companies behind the software will be required to limit access of any users spreading “illegal content.”
