Russian lawmakers pass first draft of Internet-isolation legislation

Red Square- Moscow Russia Russia planning to disconnect from the world wide web

The goal of the experiment is to provide feedback and gather insight on how the Russian national intranet would perform if severed from the main internet backbone, ZDNet reports.

According to Kozlyuk, internet pre-filtering centres will also be introduced and the Russian Federal Service for Supervision of Communications, Information Technology and Mass Media (also known as the Roskomnadzor ) will be able to regulate traffic routing.

Roskomnazor will inspect the traffic to block prohibited content and make sure traffic between Russian users stays inside the country, and is not re-routed uselessly through servers overseas, where it could be intercepted.

It's supposed to take place sometime before April 1, as this is the last day for submitting amendments to the proposed law.

The plan is part of a draft law, called Digital Economy National Program, which was submitted to Russia's parliament previous year, BBC News reports, citing Russian media. Natalya Kaspersky, Director of Russian cyber-security firm InfoWatch, and co-founder of Kaspersky Lab, presides over the group, which also includes major Russian telcos such as MegaFon, Beeline, MTS, RosTelecom, and others.

The Russian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs has said the bill poses more of a risk to the functioning of the Russian internet segment than the alleged threats from foreign countries that the bill seeks to counter.

Russian Federation is shutting off its internet as part of a dramatic test to help it defend against devastating cyber attacks.

The Russian government has been working on this project for years.

The proposed law, fully endorsed by President Putin, is expected to pass.

The rather odd decision by Vladimir Putin's country to prepare to close off its internet connections from the outside world comes in response to what local news agency RosBiznesKonsalting* (RBK) described as a new draft law "on a sustainable Runet".

Critics say the bill would create an internet firewall similar to China's.
