MOSCOW (Sputnik) – The laws passed by the Federation Council amend the Russian Criminal Code, the Code of Criminal Procedure, as well as 10 other federal acts.
The Federation Council, the upper house of Russia's parliament, has not received a request from Chairman of the Presidential Council for Civil Society and Human Rights Mikhail Fedotov to reject an anti-terrorist legislation draft, a source at the Federation Council told RIA Novosti on Wednesday.
Earlier in the day, Fedotov said he urged the Federation Council to reject the anti-terrorist legislation draft and establish a commission with Russia's State Duma, the lower house of parliament, and finalize the draft after parliamentary elections in the country scheduled to take place in mid-September.
"We have not received such a request through any channels," the source said.
Last week, the draft anti-terrorist laws were passed by the lower house of the Russian parliament. According to the legislation, the providers, messengers and social networks will be obliged to keep information about their users' calls and chats on Russian territory for three years, while the contents of the calls and chats should be kept for six months.
