Isolation of the Russian Internet: who benefits from this myth?

The State Duma of Russia has adopted a law on the reliable functioning of the Internet. It implies the creation in the country of an autonomous system to ensure the availability of the Internet, even if someone tries to make it difficult for us to access the World Wide Web. In addition, the project will allow storing personal data of Russian citizens on internal servers, as well as significantly reduce the risks of cyber attacks from the outside.

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.

    That's right - all those who vote that the Russian leadership wants to isolate the "Russian society" from the "World Wide Web" are in fact fulfilling an order for the amers to Dictate the conditions for using the network in Russia. These are ENEMIES of society, directing their activities to limit the possibilities of Russian society to use the Internet (since Americans want to influence all spheres of life in Russia, including through the network). The Russian leadership only wants to protect the country from restrictions on using the network for Russian citizens.

    It’s not even the law, but those who lobby it. It’s time for them to isolate themselves from society, and they sit in the State Duma and create the appearance of intense activity. Who will like the laws invented by the homies of Nemtsov Berezovsky and Prokhorov? Are there anyone who thinks that these crooks are trying to benefit the country?

    Isolation of the Russian Internet

    - I'm all for it! So that this shit, which inside Russia, such as Solovyov, Kiselev, Skabeeva and the like, did not pour out of its borders.
