For consideration by the State Duma, a bill has been introduced, in fact, prohibiting in Russia the use of VPN-services and anonymizers to bypass locks of various sites, for one reason or another established by Roskomnadzor. The authors of the bill were deputies from United Russia, Just Russia and the Communist Party.
More precisely, the bill proposes to prohibit the use of "information and telecommunication networks, information systems and computer programs" in Russia to gain access to resources, sites and pages, access to which is limited in the Russian Federation. We emphasize that the total prohibition of VPN and anonymizers is not proposed, they want to prohibit the circumvention of locks with their help. In order for the owners of such anonymizers, VPNs and other "unlockers" to comply with the law, they should be given access to the list of blocked sites of Roskomnadzor. That is, users of corporate VPNs can sleep peacefully. For failure to comply with the requirements of Roskomnadzor, it is proposed to block the access to such guilty resources that provide opportunities for viewing blocked sites within 30 days.
