    Sergey Medvedev and Ilya Goryachev, Senior Lawyers at Gorodissky and Partners, told DataGuidance, “The decision touches upon different aspects of the Advertising Law and the Communications Law with regard to the status of telcos within the advertising activities initiated by third parties. Whether or not a telco can be qualified as an advertising distributor or simply a technical service, which delivers the message from the third party (who ordered the advertising campaign) to the subscriber of the network services, is a matter of discussion. In this regard, the Tele2 case may be seen as implying a strict approach on the role of telcos in advertising activities.”

    Ilya Goryachev and Sergey Medvedev, Senior Lawyers at Gorodissky & Partners, told DataGuidance, “The Bill falls within the Russian Government’s regulatory trend towards ensuring more effective compliance with the personal data legislation. Additionally, the ability of the Roskomnadzor to initiate administrative proceedings may result in increased enforcement [across] virtually all sectors. Starting with banks and ending with retail companies, all organisations will be required to be attentive to the regulatory environment.”
