Telegram Complained To The “Skarova Package” In The Committee Of Ministers Of The Council Of Europe
Representatives of the telegram messenger, as well as telecom operators and human rights defenders of the group «agora» committee complained to the committee of ministers of the council of europe on «yarova package».
In the complaint, representatives of companies pointed out that the kremlin neglects citizens’ rights to preserve the secrets of correspondence by introducing «jarova’s law».
This preceded the case «roman zakharov against russia». He is the head of the petersburg publicity protection fund center. In 2016, he sent a complaint to the european court of human rights to the fact that the russian authorities ordered the installation of cellular operators on telecommunication networks of special equipment, allowing to carry out operational-search activities (sorm-2). Thus, the russian authorities have the opportunity to control the telephone negotiations of citizens.
Despite the fact that the court ruled in favor of the activist, moscow did not change its decision. Moreover, it was introduced «yarova package», who ordered all cellular operators, as well as internet providers to provide fsb encryption keys from correspondence of citizens in messengers.
Recall: in november 35 telegram users filed a complaint to the supreme court to refuse to adopt a lawsuit against the federal security service.
