Given the theoretical possibility of disconnecting from the Network, Russia must “create such segments that do not depend on anyone,” said Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Russian President Vladimir Putin during a meeting with representatives of Russian news agencies and the print media on Wednesday, February 20, announced the possibility of isolating the Russian segment of the Internet. “Theoretically, anything is possible”, Putin answered the question about the threat of cutting Russia off from the global net.
“I cannot say for our partners what they have in mind”, said Putin, not mentioning those he has in his mind, but noting that disconnecting Russia from the Internet “will cause them enormous damage”. “It is their invention. They can see, hear, and read all that you say, and accumulate defence information”, the president continued, adding that they would “think a hundred times” before isolating the Russian Internet.
But theoretically, anything is possible. Therefore, Russia must “create such segments that do not depend on anyone”, said Putin, noting that “technologically, of course, this can be done”.
