Deadline – until January 1, 2025, Yandex and Ozon promised to prepare

Deputies of the State Duma of the Russian Federation at a plenary meeting today, November 30, immediately adopted in the second and third readings a bill to extend the period during which one can register and log in on Russian websites using a foreign email. The period during which it will still be possible to use foreign services has been extended until January 1, 2025. The author of the bill is Deputy Chairman of the Committee on Information Policy, Information Technologies and Communications Anton Gorelkin.

Let us recall that in July of this year, the State Duma adopted a law that obliges authorization on Russian websites in several ways: by mobile phone number, through “State Services”, the Unified Biometric System or another domestic service. You cannot log in using foreign email or services like Google or Apple ID. The amendments were supposed to come into force on December 1, 2023, but after discussing the issue with market representatives, it turned out that not all digital platforms will be able to prepare and begin to comply with this law within the specified time frame, as Gorelkin noted.

The deputy added that Yandex and Ozon undertake to bring their authorization systems into compliance with the law within 2024 and launch them by 2025. According to him, the decision on the transition period was made not for the sake of digital companies, but for the sake of users, since if such a bill is not adopted now, then people will be inconvenient to use many services.
