Newsletter Russian Desk, Law on the “grounding” of IT giants, July 2021

Federal Law No. 236-FZ “On the Online Activity of Foreign Entities in the Russian Federation”, which has also been referred to as the Law on the “grounding” of IT giants (the “Law”), was signed on 1 July 2021 and entered into force in part.

The adoption of the Law is attributable to the existence of a significant number of foreign companies which do business online and are popular in Russia, but have no legal presence in Russia. This concerns in particular a large number of companies such as social networks, hosting providers, online stores, companies in the IoT sector, search engines, webmail and messaging providers, etc. This complicates materially the sending of requests and demands by the Russian law enforcement and other state authorities to such foreign companies, and equally the enforcement of the decisions of Russian courts.
