Follow the PrivacyRules live session on the Russian recently adopted law on foreign internet companies.

On 1 July 2021, Russia adopted a new law on foreign internet companies. They are required to obey the national laws, register with local authorities, accept and follow local court acts, and block certain content. By 1 January 2022, they must establish subsidiaries, representative offices, or branches in Russia.

 

The law sets forth an applicability test that extends the Russian jurisdiction over various types of IT companies – starting from internet giants (having more than 500,000 Russian users daily), hosting providers and ending up with any website supporting user accounts and messaging between Russian users.
