Today is the day when Russian new law about the isolation of Russian segment of the internet kick into power.
That is right. Earlier this year Russia passed the law saying that Russian segment of the internet was to be isolated from the rest of the world. This means that at any given time Russia might pull the plug and turn off the access to the world web for its citizens.
To implement this law Russian government is going to invest almost $500 million.
Those worries about the Russian people say that this is just another step taken by the Russian government to control and censor information, available to the people of Russia through the internet.
