From the past few hours, some reliable news resources report Putin has asked the Russian Ministry of Digital Development to cut down internet connection to the west by severing internet lines laid in international waters.
At first, the target will be the UK and then their target will be the rest of the western world, including Canada and North America.
The digital department has also been assigned to shift all the government websites onto .RU domain and all the ISPs will use a single domestic DNS server for operations.
According to the satellites funded by a private firm of the UK, Yantar, the Russian spy ship holding two submarines capable of cutting undersea internet cables has left its home-port of Murmansk and is busy completing the assigned project by the early hours of March 16th,2022. If the project sees success, then almost 98 percent of global communication reaching a financial estimate of $11 trillion as daily transactions will be deeply affected.
The Russian firewall that was built to block western domination in the IT field is reportedly ready to take its task of protecting the nation against state-funded attacks.
Senior security analysts who worked for the government of the UK in the past suggest that the country must stay extra vigilant in such situations and must protect its national infrastructure against all variants of cyber threats.
Note- The undersea cables used to keep the entire world connected are well protected by companies such as Google, Amazon, and some other tech corporate. And it’s not that easy to dodge the eyes of these businesses and damage the cables.
