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

Facebook does not plan to not only build data centers in such countries, but also simply store them

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

In the future, Facebook will completely abandondata storage, as it happens with WhatsApp, which does not store encryption keys. In addition, Messenger and WhatsApp will be protected by end-to-end encryption technology, and Facebook will be able to automatically delete messages after some time - in a month or a year.

In mid-April 2018, Roskomnadzor beganto block Telegram on the territory of Russia after service representatives refused to transfer encryption keys to the Russian special services from the user's correspondence. According to Telegram, the transfer of keys is technically impossible, since this data is not stored even on the messenger 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.
