Medvedev mentions about the possible disconnection of Russia from the global network

Disconnecting Russia from the global network is possible, but the authorities have a plan of action in this case, said the Deputy Chairman of the Security Council Dmitry Medvedev.

Medvedev said that Russia has the technical capabilities to ensure the autonomous operation of the Russian segment of the Internet, but no one would like to take it to such extremes.

"Technologically, everything is ready for this. At the legislative level, too, all decisions have been made. But once again I emphasize: this is not easy, and I would really not want it,” stressed he.

Medvedev acknowledged that the isolation of the Russian segment of the Internet is only a backup plan in the extreme case if Russia is disconnected from the global network. "Of course, we have a plan for how to act in such a situation. The Internet, as you know, appeared at a certain time, and, of course, the key management rights are located in the United States of America. So potentially, Russia's disconnection from the global network can happen," said Medvedev. 

The politician recalled the constant talk about disconnecting Russia from the international interbank system for transmitting information and making SWIFT payments. "They constantly frighten us with this. We were even forced to create our own system for the transfer of information if suddenly this happens so that electronic messages can be exchanged. The same thing can potentially happen with the Internet, and then we will not have access to the main nodes of this network," said the deputy head of the Security Council.

The Deputy Head of the Security Council recalled that against the background of such risks, a law on the Russian segment of the Internet was adopted so that it could be managed autonomously.

Nevertheless, the deputy head of the Security Council urged to be realistic and understand that if the Runet is isolated, it will create big problems.

Earlier, E Hacking News was reported that Russian business expressed fear about the isolation from the global Internet.

Digital Concentration Camp: Tech giants are playing God

Recent events in the United States have shown that the tech giants do not care about the constitution, this is a cause for concern.

There are situations when half a dozen people who have created their own technological empires do not even want to know what rights they have in their state. They determine their own rights on the basis of so-called "corporate norms" and do not respect the constitution of their states. We have seen this clearly in the United States. This, of course, a matter of serious concern.

In general, we are talking about the fact that several major multinational corporations - IT, media, pharmaceuticals, banks - plan to do what they want with people. As you know, the emergence of giant monopolies is a classic feature of any large-scale crisis of capitalism. Lenin wrote about this fascinatingly.

An excellent example of this was when Twitch, Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and Instagram previously blocked Trump's accounts for various periods of time due to his statements about the riots in Washington on January 6.

According to Vladimir Shapovalov, a member of the board of the Russian Association of Political Science, Trump and his supporters were deprived of the freedom to vote, the right to receive and disseminate information. But such a right is fundamental.

Another example is how the largest American airline Delta blacklisted almost nine hundred passengers for their "Trumpism". In November, the same company denied its services for life to a passenger who shouted slogans in support of Trump.

It's interesting to note that on one decision to ban Trump, Zuckerberg's company lost 5% of its value. However, they don't seem to care at all about profit. Uber, Snapchat, and Tesla record losses year after year. All they are interested in is the most severe control of their consumers.

It is worth noting that on January 17, Naavi, a veteran Cyber Law specialist in India, became a victim of the injustice of the monopolies. He published an interesting article Union Bank and RSA Fiasco, where he shared his experience and expressed his opinion about what is happening. It all started with the fact that his site was groundlessly accused of hosting a phishing script. The article about Union bank, published on January 14, 2021, received a complaint from the RSA security service. This resulted in the Service provider M / S Square brothers has disabled not only the article page but the entire website www.naavi.org.

Readers in the comments advise Naavi to send a legal notice to RSA and UBI for defamation, DoS (disruption of legal rights) and various sections of the IT Act. The consensus among readers is that RSA and UBI consider themselves above the law and that they need to be made aware of their limits.

Moreover, even our E Hacking news portal has faced similar issue. The Cyber Security Company Comodo mistakenly marked the E Hacking news site as phishing. We even sent a false positive request from their website and also tried to contact them on their Twitter account. There was no reaction on their part.

Earlier, E Hacking news reported that a Russian IT company reportedly lost the contract in the USA because of serving sites with content from Trump supporters.
