The HRC proposed the creation of a register of toxic content. For example, refusal to have children is considered

Igor Ashmanov, a member of the Presidential Council for the Development of Civil Society and Human Rights, took the initiative to create a register of toxic content. This was reported by Vedomosti.

There is a huge gray area that serves to involve people in already prohibited activities. Creating a toxic content registry is a way to do something about this gray area – content that won't be banned anytime soon.

– he declared.

Ashmanov referred to such content information about violence, the danger of vaccinations, radical feminism, refusal to have children, encouragement of LGBT people and bestiality. He made a proposal to “block, clean up, downgrade, remove from platforms” such content.

Ashmanov put forward the idea of creating a directory similar to Wikipedia, where the categories of content and the degree of its toxicity will be determined in the process of “open public discussion”, and it will be conducted by an “open community”. Ashmanov proposes to differentiate the register according to the degree of toxicity – from prohibited to undesirable. The catalog will include links to existing sites, online groups and screenshots, and social networks will be able to connect to it through “technological connectors” and get recommendations on how to use it.

Ashmanov also proposed to sign a memorandum on counteracting toxic and prohibited content on the Internet for companies such as VKontakte, Yandex, Rambler, Rutube, and foreign digital platforms.

Igor Ashmanov plans to present his initiative at the next meeting of the HRC with Vladimir Putin, which may take place before the New Year. Presidential press secretary Dmitry Peskov said that the Kremlin knows nothing about the idea of creating a register of toxic content.

Roskomnadzor also wants to block certain content. He has already censored anime films and TV series. Next in line are projects “promoting non-traditional sexual relations and sexual deviations.”
