Russian Federation to disconnect from the internet as part of a planned test

Russian Federation to disconnect from the internet as part of a planned test

The reason for the experiment is to gather insight and provide feedback and modifications to a proposed law introduced in the Russian Parliament in December 2018.

The bill proposes that all internet traffic to users be routed through servers in Russian Federation - making VPNs (virtual private networks) ineffective.

According to a report from Russian news site RBC, the planned disconnection is meant to examine whether the country run by Vladimir Putin is prepared for a draft law that mandates a "sovereign" internet.

A date for the test has not been set, but is supposed to happen before April 1, according to a law introduced a year ago.

Ceramic Black Samsung Galaxy S10+ Likely Launching All Alone
It is pretty evident from the leaked renders of the Galaxy M30 that the device looks a lot like the Galaxy M20 for the most part. The smartphone in total will have four cameras with three on the back and a 16 MP selfie camera on the front.

Finanz.ru also reported that local internet services Mail.ru and Yandex.ru were also supportive of the test disconnection.

The government wants this ability to ensure they can protect their Internet assets from foreign aggression and be able to route all traffic internally.

But some officials think the voice that western countries will cut off Russia's network is very ridiculous, instead, the Russian government will do it automatically in emergency to eliminate the negative impacts on the nation.

The State Duma has passed the first reading of legislation co-authored by Senator Andrey Klishas that would allow the federal authorities to take control over the connection points linking Russian Federation to the global Internet.

Gordon Banks, England World Cup-winning goalkeeper, dies at 81
He started every game for his country during the 1966 tournament and played in the 4-2 victory over West Germany in the final. England manager Gareth Southgate said on the Football Association website: 'I am deeply saddened to hear of Gordon's passing.

The Russian government has been working on this project for years.

Russia's response comes as North Atlantic Treaty Organisation countries announced several times that they were mulling a stronger response to cyber attacks, of which Russian Federation is constantly accused of carrying out.

Russia's telecom watchdog, Roskomnazor, will inspect traffic to block prohibited content and make sure that traffic between Russian internet users is not re-routed to servers outside of the country, according to ZDNet.

The concept appears similar to China's Great Firewall, which regulates internet operations in view of reinforcing national sovereignty.
