Russian government employees may soon be banned from using Google, Yahoo and WhatsApp.
A bill banning the use of the aforementioned services may soon be submitted for consideration of the Duma (Russian parliament), reports hvylya.net. The bill aims to get the government employees to ‘lend an ear to Nikolay Patrushev, Security Council Secretary’ who urged them to stop using Google, Yahoo and WhatsApp because foreign intelligence services use them to spy on their users. The bill has been co-authored by Mikhail Marchenko, Head of ‘Let’s Protect Russia’ NGO, and Vadim Solovyov, a Russian MP and Head of the Russian Communist Party’s Legal Service.
If caught using the services, Russian government employees will be fined or even fired.
According to Illya Kostunov, a member of the Duma’s Security and Anti-Corruption Committee, the bill has been advanced for self-promotion and cannot solve the problem.
