The project "Russian Internet" - what is it? Delirium, provocation or the future?

    the most unfavorable scenario is that everyone will have to register domain names using the Cyrillic top-level domain .rf: “Then Russia will have its own root server, and the top-level domain will be much easier to control than hundreds of thousands of second-level domains.”

    An interesting look at the Cyrillic domains.
    In fact, if they are controlled only in Russia, then hello the censor.
    :-(

    Cyrillic domains are already nearby:

    The administrators of the national top-level domains (ccTLDs) independently decide on the issue of opening the registration of domains with characters of national alphabets in the domain zones entrusted to them. The earliest deployments of IDN were in China (CN), Japan (JP), and Taiwan (TW). The administrators of these national domains, together with the administrators of the public domain INFO and ORG, with the support of ICANN, have developed Guidelines defining the general procedure for the implementation of multilingual domains.

    About 1.5% of all domains registered in the world are multilingual domains (in absolute figures - about 1 million domains). Today, domain names with symbols of national alphabets are registered in more than 40 domain zones both in common use (COM, NET, ORG, BIZ, INFO) and national (South Korea (KR), Germany (DE), Austria (AT), Switzerland (SN), China (CN), Portugal (RT), Cocos Islands (SS), Tuvalu (TV), Brazil (BR), Greece (GR), Hong Kong (NK), Singapore (SG), Poland (PL), Sweden (SE), Lithuania (LT), etc.). The list of domains in which registration of multilingual domain names is possible is constantly expanding.
