In Russia, from June 15 to July 15, tests were held to disconnect the Runet from the global network. All operators of the Big Four (MTS, Beeline, MegaFon and Tele2), as well as Rostelecom, Transtelecom and ER-Telecom Holding, took part in the exercise, RBC reports on Wednesday, 21 July, with reference to the materials of the “Information Security” group at the ANO “Digital Economy”.

“The purpose of the exercises is to determine the possibility of Runet's work in the event of external distortions, blockages and other threats. The official results have not yet been summed up, preliminary the exercises were recognized as successful,” a source in the telecommunications market told RBC. Another interlocutor of the edition said that “the possibility of physically disconnecting the Russian part of the Internet was being tested.”

Meanwhile, Roskomnadzor indicated that such exercises are conducted in accordance with the law on an annual basis. These tests “are aimed at improving the integrity, stability and security of the infrastructure of the Russian segment of the Internet,” added a representative of the department.

Autonomous Runet Law

In April 2019, the State Duma adopted in the third and final reading the law on the autonomous RuNet, designed to create an independent infrastructure for the smooth functioning of the Russian segment of the Internet in the event of its disconnection from the global network, cyberattacks and other “aggressive actions from abroad.” The law came into force on November 1 of the same year and obliges operators to install technical means of countering threats on networks that will filter traffic and restrict access to prohibited sites.

Opponents of the law see it as an attempt by the Russian authorities to raise Internet censorship to a new level. In particular, the human rights organization Reporters Without Borders called the law on a sovereign Runet “a dangerous step towards comprehensive control and supervision over digital communication.”

In February 2020, the international human rights group “Agora” and the portal “Roskomsvoboda” published the report “Internet Freedom 2019: The Fortress Plan”, according to which 438,981 cases of restricting freedom on the Internet were recorded in a year. – sites and services. ”The goal of the Russian authorities, according to the authors of the report on freedom of the Internet, is” to create a sovereign Internet like the Chinese-North Korean one. “
