Russia could create internet that is walled off from the rest of the world

On Nov. 1, Russia is set to activate a version of the internet that's walled off from the rest of the world. This is so that it can protect itself in the event of a cyber attack.

On Nov. 1, Russia could disconnect from the internet (theoretically).

A long-planned internet bill would go into effect and lay the foundation for a national network whereby internet service providers are controlled by Roskomnadzor, Russia's telecom agency.

In the context of the Internet, the intention is to govern the web and control it within the borders of a certain state.
