Even before the adoption of the law, a real information war began in Runet against this initiative. At the forefront of the attack were “foreign agents,” such as Radio Liberty, Voice of America, Deutsche Welle and others. The media wrote uncontrollably that the Kremlin was preparing isolation of the Russian segment of the Internet.
In fact, the law does not have a single word about isolation. The network of any country (with the possible exception of China), in principle, cannot be completely isolated. The Russian Internet is already too tightly integrated into the global network. Actually, it is also completely impossible to disconnect our country from the World Wide Web. But to create certain problems, violating its stability as a whole, is not so difficult.
It was in order to minimize risks and potential harm, the Russian authorities adopted the relevant laws. This is not isolation, but an attempt to ensure the stability of the Runet. The Western press, on the contrary, is trying to pass it off as a violation of rights and freedoms in Russia, by which it incites the country's citizens to take to the streets and protest.
