The Russian Internet is an integral part of the global network. This was stated by Director of the coordination centre of domains .EN/.Andrei Vorobyov at the opening of the Asia-Pacific forum on Internet governance APrIGF 2019. This is the website of the coordination centre.

“Russia is open for cooperation on any issues with all countries of the world and we are focused on working together in the area of policy development, building the business, creating technical standards”, — said Vorobyov.

He noted that the emergence of the IDN domain .Russia was greeted with skepticism — many did not believe in its relevance, and some even feared that the emergence of IDNs will destroy the Internet. However, according to Vorobyov, all the fears proved groundless: IDN domains are actively developing, a lot of them in the Asia-Pacific region. “With their help, the Internet preserves the cultural code of various countries and peoples”, — said the Director of the coordinating center.

The Prime Minister of Yakutia Vladimir Solodov cited the example of the development of the Internet in their country. According to him, access networks have 512 settlements of Yakutia, which are home to 99.3 percent of the population. And 87 percent of the population go online daily. “The Internet gives everyone an equal quality of public services. With the help of Internet we can improve living conditions, develop public institutions and build our future,” said Solodov.

Asia-Pacific forum on Internet governance APrIGF 2019 takes place on the basis of far Eastern Federal University in Vladivostok. It involved 300 representatives from 50 countries. During the three days of sessions, sections and round tables will feature more than 100 speakers. The coordination centre of domains .EN/.Russia is the host of this international forum.
