Digital Ethics and Traditional Values in the Global Entertainment and Media Industry: Digital Psychology in the Context of a New Media Ethic
It is very important for the state to create clear rules of operation, and they should be based on respect for the digital rights of our citizens. One of the most inviolable and important rights is the right of a citizen to freely search for information on the web. And it is essential that we ensure this right here. That is why a bill on the regulation of referral services is currently being drafted

Digital Ethics and Traditional Values in the Global Entertainment and Media Industry: Digital Psychology in the Context of a New Media Ethic
It’s the government’s job to find the optimal balance between the rights of users, the rights of citizens – it’s fundamental and should be at the top of the list – and business objectives. And, in fact, we’re just starting to create the legislation,

Digital Monopolies and Cyber Threats: The Clash between Platforms and National Governments
The legislation on the “landing” of foreign platforms is antitrust in spirit, it obliges foreign platforms with a high percentage of Russian users to establish their representation in our country; it does not force them to establish their offices here. Currently, we are talking about a personal account in a system specially created by Roskomnadzor, foreign players need to appoint and authorize persons to work with government bodies

Digital Monopolies and Cyber Threats: The Clash between Platforms and National Governments
We are currently working on a legislative initiative aimed at protecting Russian users, so that there is public and government control over recommendation algorithms. We do not want to interfere, but we want transparency

Digital Monopolies and Cyber Threats: The Clash between Platforms and National Governments
Another challenge we face is the control of recommendation algorithms. When it comes to marketplaces, recommendation is good. But what if a user reads an anti-vaccine post, and the algorithm feeds them more denial and conspiracy theories?

Digital Monopolies and Cyber Threats: The Clash between Platforms and National Governments
Countries that are digital leaders are picking keys to a new industry with varying degree of effectiveness. We are still at the beginning of this long journey. Our legislative actions have logic, they are justified and generally respond to challenges, considering the specifics of our market. Our IT-legislation should be antitrust in spirit, it should contain safeguards against monopolization of our IT-markets by American and Chinese companies

Preserving Cultural Diversity in the Age of Global Digital Platforms
Regulation should be deliberate [...] We should be open to Western content on large platforms, but not to the platforms themselves. We can’t cut off the opportunities for Russian players to enter open capital markets [...] We need to think about how to effectively separate ownership and control. And one more innovation that we are discussing, which I suggest we think about, is to nevertheless introduce a restriction on the distribution of foreign content within a single platform [...] At the same time, we will certainly support the creation of partnerships between Russian and Western players,
