Information appeared on the Roskomnadzor website that the American company Apple created a personal account on the Roskomnadzor website as part of the implementation of the law on the activities of foreign persons on the Internet in Russia. This document is also referred to as the “Foreign Internet Company Landing Law”.
The disclosure section states that Apple has not yet posted an electronic form on its website in Russia, nor has it opened a representative office or established a Russian legal entity, but has successfully registered a personal account.
According to the new law, foreign Internet companies whose daily audience exceeds 500,000 users are required to open their representative offices in Russia. Roskomnadzor has already published a list of companies that should open representative offices. Among them were Google, Apple, Meta Platforms, Twitter, TikTok, Telegram and others.
