Apple, Google, Telegram and a dozen other companies are required to open Russian offices. Otherwise, they will be blocked in Russia.

Rosconadzor made registry foreign Internet companies that are required to open Russian offices under the recently adopted “Landing Law”. The list includes 13 companies:

  • Apple
  • Google
  • Meta (ex-Facebook)
  • Twitter
  • TikTok
  • Telegram
  • Zoom
  • Likeme (likee social network)
  • Viber
  • Discord
  • Pinterest
  • Spotify
  • Twitch

The website of these companies will have to display the contact information of the Russian offices (address, phone number, email), and on the Roskomnadzor website, offices will be created for them to interact with the authorities. In addition, they are required to install an attendance counter on their resources with sending statistics to Roskomnadzor, as well as a feedback form for receiving applications from Russian users. The law also obliges them to remove information recognized as illegal in Russia.

Failure to comply with the requirements of the “law on landing” of the company in the worst case threatens a partial or complete blocking of its resources on the territory of Russia. Before blocking, milder measures of influence are provided: exclusion of links to the company’s resources from search services and a ban on advertising, receiving payments and collecting personal data.
