Cell phones sold in Russia will have to promote “traditional values”. You see

As Reuters advances, the Russian antimonopoly authority issued guidelines for companies to create software mobile that highlights and promotes Russian moral and spiritual values. These guides were issued following a law signed by President Putin that requires all mobile phones, computers and Smart TVs to have software Russian preinstalled.

The goal is for all mobile phones to have software that helps preserve traditional Russian values. However, neither the authorities nor the government specified what those values ​​are, or what kind of software will come pre-installed.

With regard to time windows, the new law will come into force in the summer of 2020. The guides for creating software deemed appropriate for Russian citizens will be completed by the end of the month, and will be submitted for government approval in March.

A drastic measure that interferes with individual freedoms

Similar to China, Russia tends to severely restrict Internet access to its citizens. In recent months, Russia has been issuing requests to Google to erase search results, even taking the company to court.

In addition, the Russian government requires that all social networks used in the country store data on local servers. Companies like Facebook, for example. This last measure is understandable, given the complicated history that Facebook has with privacy.

However, this is an extreme example of the government interfering in the personal lives of citizens. Imagine a future where you buy a mobile phone and the pre-installed applications are filled with political propaganda or promotion of values. As much as Russia wants to “protect” the country’s moral values, it is up to each citizen to decide what to install on the mobile phone.
