The zen" under the restrictions of foreign possession provided by the bill of news aggregators was reported on a teleconference with analysts by the operating and finance director of the Internet company Greg Abovsky. ""Yandex. The zen" isn't the news aggregator - it is the social media platform where users can consume various types of media, including video, comment and put likes, it is more social network or discovery platform" — he has reported. Commenting on a possibility of getting under operation of the law of the aggregator of Yandex.News, Abovsky has noted that the aggregator doesn't generate a considerable part of revenues of the company, and besides even if restrictions will be accepted, in "Yandex" will be able to re-structure possession in the aggregator so that the company worked according to the law. Deputies of the United Russia and and LDPR have introduced the bill which limits foreign possession in news aggregators of shares in 20% to the State Duma. "Owners of news aggregators as well as mass media and owners of audiovisual services, perform important public function: they distribute public information of wide audience. These subjects regularly make information impact on the population of Russia therefore the legislation of Russia has to impose similar requirements to them" — it was noted in the explanatory note to the bill. In 2016 in Russia similar measures in relation to mass media have been taken: foreign possession has been limited to a share in 20%, authors of the bill remind.
