“We fill in legal vacuum. It is not about mass media. Their activity is already regulated enough.” – said Alexey Kazakov, one of the draft law authors. He believes news aggregators must handle information very responsibly: whether republish trustworthy mass media, which verify information, or bear responsibility if they publish information without its verification. “Aggregators have more influence than mass media. But we don’t want to make unbearable conditions for them (but, in fact, draft law makes it) therefore we grant only to relevant authorities, but not to citizens, the right to submit a claim to Roskomnadzor.” – said Kazakov. He also admits Russian market can lose resources with foreign participation (where foreign participation in companies share is more than 20%). “There are ideological manipulations, and we must control them and minimise foreign influence.” – underlined Kazakov.
