The Ministry of Justice approved the rules for the formation of a special data bank of extremist materials. The corresponding order of the ministry was published on the official portal of legal information. The document comes into force on July 15.

It is assumed that the database, which will be formed by one of the departments of the Ministry of Justice, will include digital copies of materials recognized as extremist by a court or on the basis of prosecutor’s statements.

The information that will be included in the database will become information of restricted access. These materials are planned to be used to counter extremist activities and monitoring. Access to the resource, in addition to the Ministry of Justice, will be received by the Ministry of Internal Affairs, the Prosecutor General’s Office, the FSB, the Investigative Committee, Roskomnadzor, Rosfinmonitoring, the Federal Customs Service, the Russian Guard and the Supreme Court.
