Advisor to the President of the Russian Federation Herman Klimenko hopes that the bill on regulation of messenger will be updated to reflect developed and a common position of the Internet industry.

On Wednesday, the number of deputies of the lower house of Parliament in the Duma introduced a bill prescribing the duties of the messengers. In particular, they will have to identify its users by their phone number and to deny them the message exchange in case of not respecting this condition.

«As with any law that applies to the Internet, I hope that it will be the same procedure as usual. That is, that we will collect at the base of the Duma Committee on information policy, information technologies and communications Leonid Levin industry and all stakeholders», — Klimenko told RIA Novosti.

He noted that all the laws on the regulation of the Internet, which were adopted (act of oblivion, on the regulation of news aggregators) initially evoked strong negative emotions. «Then there was a compromise between the laws and the industry,» — said the expert.

According to him, this document appeared as expected. «It has long been discussed in the industry… One side is Milonov, who says only the passport, the second side is a conditional Durov, who says there will never cooperate with the authorities. I hope that we will be able to develop a common position», — concluded the Minister.
