The Ministry of Communications decided to postpone for some time the introduction of certain norms of the "Spring Law". Corresponding proposals were sent to the government, they partially took into account the wishes of telecom operators and IT companies — it was proposed to postpone the annual increase in storage sizes for a year. Salary reduction proposals in the IT industry are not supported.

According to "Businessman", telecom operators asked to postpone the annual increase in the storage capacity of subscriber data by 15% for two years, but the Ministry of Communications proposed an annual delay. It was also proposed to exclude video traffic from the calculation of capacity, which has grown sharply in a pandemic. In addition, telecom operators can be granted a deferral of taxes and fees until the end of the year in case of modernization and expansion of networks, as well as provide rental vacations.

As part of the IT business, the Ministry of Telecommunications and Communications proposes to reset the VAT rate for online education, telemedicine and food delivery services, as well as to cancel the payment of insurance premiums to the payroll fund, to defer the payment of personal income tax until the end of the year.

The Ministry of Communications also included in the package of proposals a program of concessional lending to IT companies and industries that implement domestic solutions, grants to development institutions for developers of software solutions, and subsidized demand for their products. The proposal to give employers the right to reduce employees' salaries by up to 20% or to leave them on forced leave by cutting their salaries by 50% is not included in the version of support measures sent to the government.
