    Andrey Krutskikh, the special representative of the Russian president for international cooperation in information security, stated that it is necessary to establish rules under which a person buying a gadget would be sure there is no threat to their private life.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — World countries should abandon the idea of spying on one another and developing global espionage systems, Andrey Krutskikh, the special representative of the Russian president for international cooperation in information security, said Monday, stressing the need to reach the relevant agreement.

    "It is important not to interfere with each other, not to create global systems for spying on one another… It is necessary to establish rules under which a person buying a gadget would be sure there is no threat to their private life," Krutskikh told the RT broadcaster when asked about the rules of behavior in the information space.

    The presidential envoy stressed the need for a pragmatic agreement to prevent such incidents and their negative consequences.

    "A considerable number of other influential countries are keen on negotiating such agreements with us," Krutskikh noted.

    On July 20, Krutskikh said Moscow and Washington were in talks on the establishment of a cybersecurity group.
