Russia “successfully” tested internet breakaway – Kremlin “ready” for sanctions policy (Peskov)
Russia has tested the stability of Runet – the Russian part of the global internet – and it’s potential readiness to disconnect from the world wide web in the event of “external distortions, blockages and other threats”, RBC reports.
“We are living in an age when many countries are apologists for the sanctions policy, the policy of restrictions. The tools of this policy are absolutely unpredictable, so you need to be ready for everything,” Kremlin press sec Dmitry Peskov said on Thursday.
Although the exact nature of the tests themselves have not been revealed, with a full report due by the end of August.
