Internet in Russia is facing another challenge

Russian Flag
Isn’t better for Russia to remain connected to rest of the world through internet and be a part of global community? What Russia is going to achieve by going alone? If government fears about western control of internet and information flow, then they have an option to bring in a mechanism where governance will become more transparent. Cutting off Russia from rest of the world, will only stagnate the growth – both business and intellectual.

Earlier also, during the height of Soviet Union Russia achieved much feats in space and missile technologies but not much in electronics and chip design. Cutting internet will not only stop western propaganda (in Russian terms) but interrupt useful information flow as well.

Russia and rest of the world will be a better place if we decide to live together than Russia going alone.
