Zuckerberg: "Facebook will not store user data in countries where human rights are violated." For this, Facebook can block Russia

Not only does Facebook have no plans to build data centers in such countries, but it also doesn't plan to store them

According to Zuckerberg, this could lead to the blocking of Facebook in some countries, but the company is ready to make such sacrifices.

In the future, Facebook will completely refuse to store data, as it doesIn addition, Messenger and WhatsApp willare protected by end-to-end encryption technologies, and Facebook will be able to automatically delete messages after a period of time — after a month or a year.

In mid-April 2018, Roskomnadzor beganblock Telegram in Russia after representatives of the service refused to hand over encryption keys from user correspondence to Russian intelligence services. According to Telegram, transferring the keys is technically impossible, since this data is not even stored on the messenger’s servers. 

Due to attempts to restrict access to the messenger underblocking by the department hit nearly 20 million IP addresses of Amazon, Google and other popular hosting providers. This has caused hundreds of non-Telegram resources to malfunction. In addition, the quality of access to many sites that use Google and Amazon for their work has deteriorated in Russia. Despite this, Telegram continues to operate in Russia.

Companies are required to store and processpersonal data of residents of Russia in the country since 2015. Roskomnadzor recently fined Facebook and Twitter 5 thousand rubles for the refusal of corporations to store personal data within the country.
