Russian business fears the loss of the Russian Federation from the global Internet. The Ministry of Digital Affairs proposed amendments to the law “On Information” prohibiting modern encryption protocols for sites, which is tantamount to disconnecting the country from the World Wide Web.

RSPP expresses concern about a possible innovation, which is associated with a change in the use of modern Internet technologies. We are talking about the problems when popular payment services and online stores will implement protocols. At the same time, the Ministry of Digital Industry of the Russian Federation intends to create a special working group with the aim of finalizing the project. Encryption is necessary because the propagation of this procedure will cover a significant number of sites. The following is called the risk of nullifying the possibility of blocking them in Russia. The RSPP noted that the proposed amendments cover encryption protocols used in all areas. If we accept the innovations in the proposed form, then formally illegal use of computers and smartphones is allowed. The same applies to the possibility of organizing the work of information systems, which in turn will cause the most negative consequences.
Before adopting a new law, it is necessary to develop the necessary changes and additions. The same applies to the removal of cryptography from all state information systems or the launch of the modernization process.
