The beginning of the end of American supremacy over the Internet
The beginning of the end of American supremacy over the Internet|Russia’s Ministry of Communications has claimed a successful Internet-wide Internet experience. Authorities claim that the new Internet experience has not seen any change in consumers. Remember that Russia passed a law in November that intended to prevent Internet traffic from coming from outside. Later, under this law, Internet services were also tested in order to protect their Internet systems from potential cyber-attacks. Critics say Russia’s Internet traffic will be isolated from the global server under the controversial Internet law, but the Russian Ministry of Communications denied that the test would not make a difference to ordinary users. Russia’s Deputy Minister of Communications Alex Sokolov told news agency AF that “the purpose of this test is to restore Internet services in Russia in an unexpected situation. Our job is to make sure that internet services are restored and that is the purpose of this test,” he said. Under the law passed in November 2019, the internet provider will have to use government-issued tools to centralize the data traffic. The Russian president said in his press conference after the passage of the law that “the government is not going to shut down the internet, but there is a difference between a free and independent Internet. In early 2019, the government announced that Russia was going to test its domestic domain system for a separate Internet from the world. Authorities say the program aims to reduce reliance on foreign Internet service provider companies and protect them from potential cyber-attacks.
