MOSCOW, July 15 (RAPSI) – President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin has enacted a bill on the specialized information database of extremist materials into law, according to the official website of legal information.

The law envisages that the Justice Ministry will be an operator of the new state information system. 

The new extremist materials database is to improve both the efficiency of active search measures or investigative activities and preparation of preventive anti-terrorism and anti-extremism actions, Chairman of the State Duma Committee on Security and Corruption Control Vasily Piskarev said earlier. It would be a sensitive state information system unlike with the Federal list of extremist materials published on the Justice Ministry’s website, he stated.

The law amends Russia’s Code of Administrative Procedure and Federal Law On Countering Extremist Activities.
