The Law on “Sovereign Runet” Came Into Force in the Russian Federation Yesterday
The ambiguous law, which caused a lot of emotions among Internet users, entered into force in Russia, yesterday, November 1, 2019.

The law on "sovereign Runet" represents the state`s attempt to have total control over information. It includes inter alia such points:
- Minimize data leakage.
- Innovations in the distribution of traffic. These distributions will be carried out by special structures - points.
- Planning and creating the so-called separate, limited, fully autonomous Russian network, with no access from abroad.
- Modifications are planned regarding the domain zone and cryptographic protection in the Russian Federation by 2021.
