Russias parliament passed a bill on Friday requiring Internet companies to store Russians personal data inside the country in an apparent move to pressure sites such as Facebook and Twitter into handing over user information. Introducing the bill to parliament this week, MP Vadim Dengin said most Russians dont want their data to leave Russia for the United States, where it can be hacked and given to criminals. Our entire lives are stored over there, he said, adding that companies should build data centres in Russia. The bill would increase pressure on social networking services which do not have offices in Russia and have become a vital resource for anti-government groups.
