Russian Federation “Protection of citizen’s image”, which indicates that
the disclosure and further use of the image of the citizen is possible only
with his consent — explains the lawyer Elena Boytsova. — Private life of a person
inviolable and, therefore, should be protected. However, the law
provides for cases in which to obtain consent is optional, so should
carefully study each fact of the use of the image of the citizen. If not
able to negotiate with violators in court, the best
the way to protect their rights is to appeal to the court. Legislation

to demand indemnification and moral harm”. All of the above 100%
applies to violations on the territory of Russia, but in this case
the violation carried out abroad, and the case will be given
