The Federal Security Service has published a draft order of the director of the FSB, which contains a special list of unclassified information prohibited for transfer to foreign states. The list includes information that is not related to state secrets, but which may harm the interests of Russia. The draft order is posted on the official portal of legal information.
The full list consists of 61 items and is divided into several sections, in particular, military information that does not contain state secrets, and military-industrial information that does not contain state secrets. Among the unclassified data, information on the assessment and forecasts of the development of the military-political, strategic and operational situation is indicated. In addition, information about the deployment, number and name of military units, financial support of troops, as well as about crimes in the army and its morale.
The section of military-industrial information that does not contain state secrets is almost entirely devoted to the protection of information about the domestic space program.
Thus, the FSB will not be able to transmit information about the target programs of the state-owned company, the timing of their implementation. It is also prohibited to disseminate information about problems, including financial and economic ones, that hinder the development of the space agency. In addition, information about Russia's international cooperation programs in the field of space activities will be banned, with the exception of information contained in the public domain.
