Russia Looking to Form Anti Troll Police

A Russian public movement has addressed the Interior Minister and lawmakers with a request to set up a special cyber-police unit that would prosecute internet users for threats, insults or creating fake accounts.

The group is named “For Security” and its leader, Dmitry Kurdesov, has told the popular Russian daily Izvestia that he is seeking not only a dedicated police force that would fight “internet trolls” but also a legislative basis that would allow punishment for online misbehavior.

In particular, activists want to introduce a new article to the Administrative Code that would order fines of 500 to 2,000 rubles ($10-$40) for creating a social network account under another person’s name.

Kurdesov noted in his comments that the existing police force that targets cybercrime, Department K of the Interior Ministry, only deals with potential extremists and terrorists, but would not protect ordinary users who suffer from bullying or harassment.

The activist added that the new force should be manned by ordinary officers as well as “good hackers” – computer security specialists.

The Interior Ministry’s press service has not yet commented on the initiative.

Current Russian laws ban the dissemination of extremist ideas on the Internet but also punish those who spread slander, insults or hate speech.
In August 2014, Russia introduced a law allowing the Federal Security Service to access personal information of all social network users. Social network platforms are required to keep logs of users’ activity for one month and provide them to law enforcement agencies on request.

Another law introduced last year was the so-called “bill on bloggers,” which required the authors of all blogs and social media accounts with 3,000 daily readers or more to register with the state watchdog Roskomnadzor, to disclose their real identities, verify the information before making it public and abstain from releasing reports containing slander, hate speech, extremist calls or other banned information such as, for example, advice on suicide.

KGB Adolph Putin doesn't want others to do what he's been doing all along.

If it wasn't for the patriot act and the NSA monitoring everything we do, I might give a fuck

I'll tell you from first hand knowledge, there is a giant government database that collects literally EVERYTHING passed over wires. It's under a mountain, and secured like Fort Knox..

Trolololol!
The more they bark, the more they seem to need to continue to bark. I don't fear them.

There's one in China and Russia too. Not just collecting from their citizens, but ours as well..

Um no they don't. First this article is from a Russian Government press, so it's written as positive as possible.

Think about how Russia works. People who oppose Putin publicly are often arrested, lose their jobs, harassed, family harassed, computers seized, assaulted, even murdered.

Russia is suppressing speech as we speak, this is just another tool they are seeking.. Like I said this article put a positive spin on it.

But there's zero doubt, this law is aimed at stopping the online criticism of Putin. Since their citizens will be required to identify themselves for everyone.

Under this law, you'd be in violation right now. Unless your real name is commondenom.
