Russia’s Information Technologies and Communications Minister, Leonid Reiman, has stated that Russia has no intention of putting into place any sort of anti-spam law.

Reiman was quoted as saying “I am against any kinds of filters and a special regime on the Internet. The web is developing rapidly and our task is to support it.â€?


Rather, he says, dealing with spam is between the ISP and consumer, and he is quoted as believing that “international community decisions should be followed and technical solutions offered by software and hardware producers”.

Of course, as recently as a year ago Russia was fairly low down on the list of spamming nations – where the U.S. was #1, Russia was a paltry 28. And while that may have climbed in the last year, Russia is hardly in the top 10 of spamming nations.

Still, and Verizon aside, it is not unheard of for mail-receiving sites to block the entire .ru (Russia) Internet domain because the only email which they receive from that neck of the Internet woods is spam.
