    Russian President Vladimir Putin signed legislation Thursday compelling telephone companies and internet providers to save and store the private communications of its customers, notwithstanding concerns raised by human rights advocates and big business alike.

    Last week, the United Nation Human Rights Council passed a resolution which “condemns unequivocally measures to intentionally prevent or disrupt access to or dissemination of information online in violation of international human rights law.”
    Human rights concerns aside, Russian telecoms have largely opposed the package by claiming the new rules for keeping customers’ data will require the deployment of additional and expensive infrastructure.
