Ukraine is demanding that Russia be kicked out of the Internet. It has been reported by ZDnet. In particular, representatives from Kiev urged the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) to revoke Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) certificates and Federation Top Level Domains (TLDs), such as “.ru” and “. рф “. The move aims to stop the propaganda and disinformation machine, which is fueling Information Warfare (InfoWar) on the web and social media. In this regard, the RIPE NCC – the regional internet registry for Europe, the Middle East and parts of Central Asia – was also asked to take away from Russia and its local internet registries (LIR) the right to use IPv4 addresses. and IPv6 assigned to them and to block their root DNS servers. If the request were granted, it would have disruptive effects. Russian websites and emails would be inaccessible from outside the Federation and there would be connection difficulties even inside. This, however, not for the military and the government traveling on different networks, but for the entire population.
