Russia plans to create an independent internet infrastructure to reduce vulnerability to attack.

The Russian Security Council has asked the Russian government to develop a separate infrastructure for BRICS countries' internet needs while still being linked to the World Wide Web, which they claim will continue services in the event of a global internet infrastructure collapse.

RBC News Agency reports that the plan already has a deadline set for August 1, 2018, which was personally decided by Russian President Vladimir Putin.

The initiative plans to create a separate 'backup' system of Domain Name Servers, DNS, that would be totally independent of international bodies and international infrastructure, yet still remaining linked to the global internet. This service would be used by BRICS countries: Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa.
