The execution of the Yarovaya's law violates the new regulation of the European Union on data protection, because of this, operators will have to pay a fine of up to 45 billion rubles ($763m), Vedomosti reports referring to the Institute for Internet Research.

Experts told about the new EU data protection regulations, it will come into force in May 2018. According to the document, it's possible to store data of European subscribers only with the permission of special services. In the Yarovaya's anti-terror law there are no restrictions or prohibitions on storing the traffic of foreign citizens. The amendments will be effective from June 1, 2018.

"If a Russian company keeps the user's data from the EU without his consent or provides this information to Russian law enforcement agencies without a court decision, it will violate the new regulations," the Institute for Internet Research said.

'Mass precedents' may occur in the summer of 2018, when Russia will host the World Cup. For breach of regulations, including by foreign companies, a fine of 20 million euros is provided, or up to 4% of annual revenue.

Amendments of State Duma deputy Irina Yarovaya and Senator Viktor Ozerov to the antiterrorist legislation were approved by the State Duma on June 24, 2016, President Vladimir Putin signed them on July 7.

According to this law, from July 1, 2018, Russian communication operators and Internet providers will be required to store all customer traffic - calls, letters, files, conversations up to six months. And information about the facts of the transfer of information - for three years.

Senator Anton Belyakov and deputy Oleg Shein proposed to postpone the entry into force of the Yarovaya's anti-terror law, but the Government rejected their amendments.
