There will be no analogue of the Great China Firewall in Russia

The Russian ministry of communication has ensured that “the way to Great China Firewall is not for Russia”. Nobody intends to create the analogue of such “roadblocks” for global internet in Russia. As said deputy of the minister of communication, Alexey Volin, “we will never choose the Chinese way in relation to internet”.

Volin said that Russia and China exchange information on media market with each other, but they don’t have in common the only way of its development. The Chinese Firewall (the so called Golden Shield) is very expensive, and despite such system any person can receive access to forbidden web-sites in China within 7 minutes, believes Volin.
