Hi Patrick,

ICANN has already rejected this proposal.

While individual operators can take action of their own, you should
also be aware that Russia, Ukraine and the United States are all
signatories to the 1907 Convention (V) respecting the Rights and
Duties of Neutral Powers and Persons in Case of War on Land which
restricts lawful disruption of telecommunications by folks who are not
belligerents in the conflict.
