They want to attract Russian hackers to prepare a report to Putin on harassment in social networks

The Human Rights Council (HRC) intends to create a "digital code" - a body of legislation that

will ensure the protection of citizens in the digital environment. To this end, the HRC plans to first submit a report to President Vladimir Putin, the preparation of which will involve, among other things, hackers.

They, according to Fadeev, “are well versed inhacking and manipulation in the network. " Putin will be told what problems Russians are currently facing on the Internet: bullying, surveillance and leakage of personal data. As an example of harassment, Fadeev cited the criticism that Leonid Roshal faced, who proposed creating a joint group of doctors to treat Alexei Navalny.

Do you remember for sure the failure of the application“Social monitoring” or last year's Golunov case, when false information [photos of the drug laboratory] was leaked to the network, and no one answered for it. These examples describe a number of serious problems of our society in the field of digitalization and information dissemination.

Valery Fadeev, Head of the HRC

First, the working group will discuss all the problemswho lie in wait for users on the Internet, will report them to Vladimir Putin, and then begin to develop the "digital code" itself - legislation that protects the rights of citizens on the Internet.

The council will initiate a bill that willprotect those who have been harassed on social networks, total surveillance or become a victim of scammers. According to Fadeev, Russian laws "do not cope with the protection of citizens in the digital environment." The HRC, when creating the "digital code", promised "to avoid the protection of rights by undermining freedoms."
