Bill to create separate Russian internet gets first approval

SeattlePI.com Tuesday, 12 February 2019 ()
MOSCOW (AP) — The lower house of Russia's parliament has passed the first reading of a bill to create a self-standing Russian segment of the internet. Supporters say the proposal is necessary in case Russia was to be cut off from the global internet, but opponents fear the measure would lead to widespread censorship. The bill proposes that all internet traffic to users be routed through servers in Russia — making VPNs (virtual private networks) ineffective. It also establishes an arm of the state communications watchdog to provide traffic control and routing.
