Decision for foreign IT companies in Russia!

According to the bill prepared by the Duma deputies, the lower wing of the Russian parliament, foreign companies with a total number of users exceeding 500 thousand will have to have representatives in Russia.

According to the bill, the representative offices in question, which should be in the form of offices, branches or legal entities, are envisaged to be the main channel of interaction between the main companies and official authorities in Russia.

If the bill becomes a law, sanctions will be imposed on foreign IT companies that do not comply with the new legislation in Russia.

Fines are frequently imposed on companies such as Twitter, Facebook and TikTok for failing to remove content requested by the Russian authorities.
