With social media activities of Russian troops under scrutiny from foreign spies and terrorists, new legislation has banned servicemen from sharing data on themselves, and their brothers in arms, online and in the media. The MPs in the State Duma voted in the draft law, proposed by the government, in the first reading on Thursday. The bill outlaws photos, videos, geolocation data and any other information, coming from the troops. Soldiers, who posted data that allows for the disclosure of their departmental affiliation, service activities, their units and place of their dislocation, may, from now on, face disciplinary sanctions from commanders.
