"on January 17, 2019 the Constitutional Court of the Russian Federation ordered to the legislator to specify norm on founders of media with dual citizenship. Hearing of the case about check of constitutionality of Article 191 of the Law of the Russian Federation of "About Mass Media" took place on November 15, 2018. The complaint of the citizen Finkelstein Evgeny Grigoryevich became a reason for consideration of the case" — it is noted in the message of court. The court explained that in terms of potential influence on information security of the country the norm on restriction of foreign possession in media is proved, but in the law there are several provisions demanding specification. "There is no clarity in a question of whether the citizen of the Russian Federation having nationality of other state can exercise the corporate rights within 20% of shares of authorized capital of economic society. And also about 20% of participation in what society there is a speech – which is a founder of media, the organization which is carrying out broadcasting or about that which is, in turn, a participant of such broadcasting organization" — noted in court. "In the conditions of such uncertainty there are unforeseen risks both for property rights of the co-owner, and for legal capacity of the most economic society, thus that the legislator directly did not establish a duty and the procedure of alienation of the shares in authorized capital of societies belonging to foreign investors – founders of media (the broadcasting organizations) in a size exceeding 20%. This approach will not be coordinated with requirements of maintenance of trust to the law and stability of civil legal relationship" — the Constitutional court emphasized.
