Implementation of the signed agreement might present a challenge for its parties, and particularly Russia, in certain important aspects. On a number of issues, Moscow seems to be more interested than its Eastern partner is. This could also be true for the paragraph on internationalization and democratization of the Internet governance mechanism, in which the official Russian approach has been embedded. Russia’s goal is to achieve transition of control over critical technical business processes (including the IANA and VeriSign functions related to management of the DNS Root Zone) under the jurisdiction of international bodies such as International Telecommunication Union.

Only then will we truly be able to manage the ecosystem of this new digital age” - Minister of Communications and Information Technology  of India Ravi Shankar Prasad.

In the course of a year, things previously thought impossible, namely Ukrainian military conflict and mutual sanctions between the West and Russia, came to reality. Europe stands at the brink of a full-flagged crisis of the arms control system and faces growing military threats.
