Minister of Communications and Mass Communications of the Russian Nikolay Nikiforov met with the regional director of Apple Peter Engrobom and CEO of SAP in the CIS, where the proposed companies to disclose the source code of their software. This was reported by the press service of the Ministry of Communications.

According to Nikiforov, such unusual requests are associated with exposures of Edward Snowden in the last year in which American intelligence agencies were accused of spying for the Russian citizens.

It is obvious that those companies that disclose the source code of their programs, not hiding anything, but those who do not intend to cooperate with Russia on this issue may have undeclared capabilities in their products – the official said.

As an example, the minister led the company Microsoft, which in 2003 opened a Russian state-experts access to the source code of the entire range of its products.

In the case of Apple it comes to providing access to the source code of iOS and OS X. At the same time such requests are contrary to the policies of the corporation. Apple spokesman said that in response to Nikiforov, is still unknown. By the way, the minister gladly uses iPhone.
