Russian bloggers with over 3,000 followers must register with the government

I’ve seen this stated as fact in numerous places, that bloggers in Russian with over 3,000 followers must register with the government. Is it true?

BBC, August 2014:

It means bloggers with more than 3,000 daily readers must register with the mass media regulator, Roskomnadzor, and conform to the regulations that govern the country’s larger media outlets.

Internet companies will also be required to allow Russian authorities access to users’ information.

It includes measures to ensure that bloggers cannot remain anonymous, and states that social networks must maintain six months of data on its users.

The information must be stored on servers based in Russian territory, so that government authorities can gain access.
