The law on isolation of the Runet is adopted by the State Duma in three readings

    On April 16, 2019, the State Duma adopted in final, third reading the law on the “isolation of the Runet” and will submit it to the upper house of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation - the Federation Council . Examination in the upper house will be held on April 22 . The entire bill under number 608767-7 is called so:
    On amendments to the Federal Law “On Communications” and the Federal Law “On Information, Information Technologies and the Protection of Information” (in terms of ensuring the safe and stable functioning of the Internet on the territory of the Russian Federation)

    The Law on the Isolation of the Russian Part of the Internet, if approved by the Federation Council and signed by the President, will enter into force on November 1, 2019. Some provisions, for example, on cryptographic protection of information and on the national DNS service , will become effective from January 1, 2021.

    The official press release of the State Duma says literally the following:
    The document was "prepared taking into account the aggressive nature of the US National Cybersecurity Strategy adopted in September 2018." So, in the document signed by the President of the United States, the principle of “preserving peace by force” is declared, while Russia is directly and unsubstantially accused of committing hacker attacks, frankly it speaks of punishment, ”the authors indicate.

    The Federation Council very rarely rejects bills at its consideration stage. There is no reason to expect that the law will not be signed by the President.

    By April 1, 2019, telecom operators should have completed field trials of technical measures to ensure and comply with the norms of the Runet’s sustainability law.

    The essence of new legislative changes

    Now the authorities will be able to control the connection points of the Russian part of the Internet with the rest of the global network. It is possible to create the necessary infrastructure that will allow the Russian segment to function autonomously if access to foreign root DNS servers or other key network nodes is limited by something from the outside. Rosomnadzor will become the agency responsible for “coordinating the provision of sustainable, safe and holistic functioning” of the Internet.
