ARTICLES: Authorities recommend businesses block children’s access to public wi-fi (RUSSIA)

Russian officials have recommended blocking public wi-fi networks for minors in a move to protect children from accessing malicious content as prescribed by a controversial new law.
Maxim Ksenzov, head of the Federal Monitoring Agency for Communications, IT and Mass-Media, voiced this suggestion at a Wednesday meeting with online publication representatives, Vedomosti reported.
Administrators of public areas that could be visited by children are to face full responsibility for making the Internet accessible to young users. Possible fines for allowing children to access malicious content have been set at 20,000-50,000 roubles.
