Moscow. March 7th. INTERFAX.RU - The Ministry of Digital Development of
the Russian Federation refutes rumors about alleged plans to disconnect
Russia from the global Internet.
"Russian websites are continuously being attacked by cyberattacks from
abroad. We are preparing for various scenarios to ensure the availability
of Russian resources. There are no plans to turn off the Internet from
within," the department told Interfax on Monday.
The press service of the department reported that the Ministry of Digital
Transformation sent a letter to government agencies, which sets out a set
of recommendations on cyber hygiene.
These recommendations, as explained in the department, will help to more
effectively organize work to protect resources from malicious traffic,
maintain the operation of services and control over domain names.
