The Ministry of Communications proposes to introduce a new concept of “critical infrastructure”. Basic elements of the concept are as follows: domains .RU and .RF are managed by the state company; possession of Internet Exchange Points, i.e. infrastructure, to exchange traffic between autonomous systems is available for Russian companies only. The question of accepting foreigners with limited interest (20%) as owners is still under discussion. Also it is being planned to create a state system for storage of information about the autonomous systems, IP-addresses and Internet Exchange Points.
