Google Delegation to Arrive in Moscow

A delegation of tech giant Google will arrive in Russia in mid-September to discuss the data protection of Gmail users in Russia, a Russian lawmaker said Sunday.

In a letter to the head of Google Russia, Senator Ruslan Gattarov, who chairs the commission on the information society development in the Federation Council, said Google's official position on the issue is that it "reserves the right to get access to correspondence of Gmail users and to use these data," media reports said. This violates Russia's personal data protection legislation and the constitution, he added.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
