Vladimir Putin signed the law against Apple

Smartphones, computers and smart TVs without Russian software are becoming illegal

Vladimir Putin signed the law against Apple

Russian President Vladimir Putin signed the so-called “law against Apple” and finally made it the current norm of Russian law. 

Putin signed the law against Apple

The document amends the law "On the Protection of Consumer Rights" and has already been published on the official portal of legal information. The amendments oblige the Russian software to be installed on smartphones, computers and televisions with Smart-TV before selling in Russia. 

The law will enter into force on July 1, 2020. By this time, the government has yet to determine the lists of mandatory applications and the exact list of devices that affect the requirements of the new law. The government will also determine how to preinstall software. 

As conceived by the authors of the initiative, the new law should provide Russian IT companies with the opportunity to promote their products and technologies.

After the  State Duma adopted the amendments in the third and final reading, the RATEK association sent a letter to Putin. It includes Google, Apple, Samsung, Intel, Dell, M. Video and many other companies. The letter says that the entry into force of the law will negatively affect the development of the industry, as well as lead to monopolization in the development of Russian software.
