Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday signed legislation requiring all smartphones, computers and smart TV sets sold in the country to come pre-installed with Russian software.

The law, which will come into force on July 1 next year, has been met with resistance by some electronics retailers, who say the legislation was adopted without consulting them.

The law has been presented as a way to help Russian IT firms compete with foreign companies and spare consumers from having to download software upon purchasing a new device.

Bullshit. 

The only thing this helps is the Kremlin spy on Russian citizens more effectively. 

And if you don’t think Trump will try something like this if he is reelected then you have not been paying attention.
