The Federal Service for Supervision of Communications, Information Technology and Mass Media of Russia (Roskomnadzor) plans to impose a ban on the showing of feature movies and series in which they demonstrate non-traditional sexual relations and sexual deviations. This ban will apply to movie theaters and streaming services.
We are talking about pedophilia, exhibitionism, sadism, masochism and other non-traditional sexual relationships. It is planned to introduce a ban on the distribution of materials that promote such relations. The same restrictions are planned to be included in the Russian law "On the Inadmissibility of Abusing Freedom of the Mass Media".
According to the innovation, such content can be included in the list of grounds for inclusion in the register of prohibited information. Internet providers and telecom operators will be required to block these pages in accordance with the requirement of Roskomnadzor.
Also, a ban on the demonstration or description of non-traditional sexual relations and sexual deviations can be added to the Russian law "On the Protection of Children from Information Harmful to Their Health and Development".
