The Russian Duma will soon vote on a bill that could ban government officials from using Apple's iPhones over concerns of spying conducted by the NSA.
RT reports that, "Russian lawmakers will consider banning state officials from using foreign-made smartphones, such as iPhones, over concerns they may not be secure. To avoid potential data leaks, they may be obliged to use Russian YotaPhones instead."
A Commission of the Federal Council, Russia's upper house parliament, intend to examine the security features of iPhones.
According to RT, "In the wake of the chain of scandals over US global snooping, including on dozens of world leaders, Russian senators and the country’s security services are pushing for measures to protect senior state officials’ communications."
Senator Ruslan Gattarov explained that iPhones are "unsuitable" for Russian officials, since they are "vulnerable in terms of security."
