I've been following Russia's steps towards an independent internet for a few years now, but it was always more about having independent infrastructure in the case of possible cut-offs of services such as DNS, etc. rather than the creation of an isolated network. Until now, apparently.

>Russia began active preparations for disconnection from the global Internet

>No later than March 11, all servers and domains must be transferred to the Russian zone. In addition, detailed data on the network infrastructure of the sites is being collected.

Given how this seems to be a full-stack solution rather than filters on top of a global network, I don't think conventional VPNs would even be able to circumvent this. It's hard to tell how real the news even is, though, as I can't find many sources on it (nor can I speak any Russian). Anyone who knows better, please feel free to fill us in.


Russian here, Please dont follow things like Nexta, its pure bullshit. Its a ukrainian tabloid which posts hyper sensationalized garbage.

That document is to force "public services" (government websites and minsteries) to use russian hosting and forbid them from things like cloudflare. Its not related to sovereign internet.

Fearmongering to get people to leave Russia is a tactic of theirs.


Why would creating an isolated network be different from preparing infrastructure for when you are cut off? What would be the difference?


The former would have no connection to the outside world at all.


I mean, from the point of view of infrastructure. I don't think Russia is in a position to reinvent everything and produce their own hardware for it. Even if they are to avoid hardware from the USA, the rest of the world still uses the same protocols and conventions. Plus this is not like Cuba where there are no cables in the ground. How could you tell if they are preparing to isolate themselves or are preparing to be isolated? It seems to me that it would involve the same things.
