Can BRICS Create CIA/NSA-Free Internet?

In the fifty-eighth edition of the Russian Newspapers Monitor, Professor Filip Kovacevic discusses the articles from four Russian newspapers:  Kommersant, Nezavisimaya Gazeta, RBK, and Izvestia. He discusses Russia’s expansion of geopolitical influence into the African continent and the emerging Cold War-type conflict between the U.S. and Russia over the energy resources of Syria. In addition, Professor Kovacevic discusses the Russian proposal to the BRICS countries to create a separate Internet to protect themselves from the Western intelligence surveillance. Lastly, he examines the recent political developments in Moldova which remains the most geopolitically fragile state in Europe at this time.

    Keep you the good work.

    Separating the Russian Internet from the rest of the world is not like rebuilding a new internet there. There is already a network in Russia, which just happens to be interconnected with other countries. Separating the Russian internet just involves setting up local DNS root servers, which have the purpose of converting human readable domain names like to machine addresses like

    I think the reason Russia is doing that with the BRICS countries is to set a precedent for other countries to follow.
