Isolation of specific networks is done without changing BGP
And the drills do not mean at all "we will turn off the Internet for all
the clients and see what happens", journalists trivialized it.
Most likely, they checked the autonomous functioning of specific
infrastructurally important networks connected to the Internet,
isolating only them.

in common software, to be able to isolate important networks from the
internet at the click of a button and buy time for patching systems.
