Deputies from the United Russia party at the expert council on May 27 planned to discuss an important bill on the regulation of recommendation services on online platforms. After the discussion, the law will be put forward to the lower house of parliament. Information about this appeared on the Kommersant website.

What are we talking about? If the law is accepted, then the online platforms in Russia will be obliged to provide users (that is, you and you) with the opportunity to disable the imposed “recommendations” from this resource. In addition, the user should be aware that algorithms are present on the site and are applied to the visitor. Such requirements will apply to social networks, news and search aggregators, audiovisual services, including video hosting.

Naturally, representatives of VK and Yandex immediately opposed such a bill. In their opinion, the rejection of such algorithms will sharply worsen the position of resources compared to competitors.
