The appropriate amendments to the federal law On Information,
Information Technologies and Information Protection and some legislative
acts were earlier passed by the State Duma and approved by the
Federation Council.

The law provides that bloggers whose personal sites or accounts on
social networking sites register at least 3,000 visits a day should be
entered in a special register. Specifically, they will be allowed to
publish advertisements for a fee.

At the same time, inclusion in this register will require bloggers to
check the information they post, comply with the election campaigning
regulations, refrain from disseminating information on citizens private
life and extremist materials, and state age limits for users.
