As reported RIA News, head of Roskomnadzor, Alexander Zharov, spoke in favor of the need to strengthen responsibility for using the media for extremist activity. In particular, he advocates administrative liability, expressed in serious administrative fines.
In addition, before that, he expressed support for the bill passed on the eve of the State Duma in the third reading, equating popular bloggers with the media. Popular will be those bloggers whose pages are visited daily by more than 3 thousands of users. They will have to check the accuracy of the information, not violate civil law in terms of the dissemination of information and the private life of a citizen, follow the prohibitions and restrictions of electoral legislation and indicate age restrictions.
At the same time, a letter was received from the Chairperson of the Presidential Human Rights Council, Mikhail Fedotov, to Valentina Matvienko, asking him to reject this bill and create a commission to finalize it. The main argument was its inconsistency with the spirit and technical features of the modern Internet.
Thus, this question caused a discussion among the leaders of the structures directing the activities of the media.
