RuNet disconnection tests were successful, according to the Russian government.

The Russian government announced on Monday that it concluded a series of tests during which it successfully disconnected the country from the worldwide internet.

The tests were carried out over multiple days, starting last week, and involved Russian government agencies, local internet service providers, and local Russian internet companies.

The goal was to test if the country's national internet infrastructure -- known inside Russia as RuNet -- could function without access to the global DNS system and the external internet.

Internet traffic was re-routed internally, effectively making Russia's RuNet the world's largest intranet.

The government did not reveal any technical details about the tests and what exactly they consisted of. It only said that the government tested several disconnection scenarios, including a scenario that simulated a hostile cyber-attack from a foreign country.

Does that mean we won't 'see' Jaycey anymore?

More likely some of the Russophiles on here will disappear :)

But it doesn't bode well if the Russian people only have access to Kremlin propaganda.

I suppose if Russia is capable of doing that, then most other countries either can or are working on that same option.

But to what purpose except to prevent their population from accessing MSM etc?

But maybe citizens there can still access the www :noidea:

Doesn’t Ukraine have restrictions to some sites?

No internet blocking here - there was talk of blocking some Russian TV & radio stations but we can still access RT etc.

The only blocking I’ve seen was from BBC Cooking – apparently peeling onions is a British state secret 😊

It never happened thank heavens - Valentina loves her Russian soapies and there would have been hell to pay :roundgrin

It goes to show though Jaycey that many countries have the capabilities, the internet has become such a powerful tool for good & in some cases bad.
