Re: will the user be able to uninstall Russian made software

To be completely honest, I suspect the entire thing is a redirect. Make a big show and a fuss, then back away from the proposed law.

In the meantime, it's already been done in another form, more quietly--I'd imagine network level, but possibly also at the device itself. And now everyone is more convinced that their phone is 'safe'. Gotcha!
