Recently, Russia, under Putin’s rule, is experiencing the most tense period in history with the ‘West’. Just at this time, a very remarkable test was carried out in the country.
According to the news in the British Daily Mail newspaper, Russia cut off the global internet connection to test how its infrastructure would work if it lost its connection with the rest of the world.
Tests involving Russia’s leading telecom companies were carried out between 15 June and 15 July. It was announced that the test was successful.
Official results will be announced on August 31. Putin, in the past period, gave instructions to provide the necessary independence to get rid of dependence on the USA on the Internet.
But there are also concerns that the trial is a trial step towards creating a restricted and controlled internet similar to the one in China.
Experts say this is part of the trend where internet connectivity is still available, but citizens of different countries have different internet experiences depending on the level of censorship. But there are still many questions about Russia’s plan to unplug the internet.
But Russia does not want to pull the plug completely. It wants to maintain internet service inside the country but block data flow in or out.
