The Federation Council proposed creating a separate service on the State Services portal, where it would be possible to enter the number from which a spam call was received, as well as the date and time of such a call. A letter with such an initiative was sent to the Minister of Digital Development, Communications and Mass Communications of Russia Maksut Shadayev by the Deputy Head of the Council for the Development of the Digital Economy under the Federation Council Artem Sheikin.
According to the senator’s idea, Roskomnadzor will determine whether the numbers belong to one or another company, after which the data will be transferred to the Federal Antimonopoly Service (FAS) of the Russian Federation. There they will already determine whether there are signs of violation of advertising laws on the part of the caller, Sheikin explained to Izvestia.
Roskomnadzor supports measures to combat intrusive spam advertising, the regulator’s press service told Izvestia. However, the department does not have information about the ownership of subscriber numbers by specific legal entities. Telecom operators have this information.
The senator emphasizes in the letter that spam calls cause concern among citizens and their number will only grow. In the first six months of 2023, subscribers received at least 3.8 billion spam calls (+215% compared to the same period in 2022). Most often they go to residents of Moscow and St. Petersburg. Then come Krasnodar, Ufa, Novosibirsk, Yekaterinburg, Rostov-on-Don, Kazan and Samara.
