Peskov told the Russian News Service (RSN) the issue was not included on the agenda of Monday’s meeting of the Council, chaired by President Vladimir Putin.
At the meeting, Putin and the permanent members of the Security Council focused on the implementation of the peace plan on resolving the crisis in southeastern Ukraine, the presidential spokesman said.
The Vedomosti newspaper reported on Friday that Russia’s Security Council was due to discuss on Monday ways in which Russia could separate itself from the Internet in case of an emergency.
The minister said attempts have been made to switch Russia off various networks, the SWIFT banking transaction system. “In these conditions, we looked at scenarios when our esteemed partners suddenly decide to block internet access for Russia,” Nikiforov said.
In July, the Russian Ministry of Communications and Mass Media together with the Defense Ministry and the Federal Security Service (FSB) officials conducted exercises to test how robust the Russian Internet would be if it were subject to targeted attacks.
Russian officials later announced plans to take steps to improve the protection of the country’s segment of the global Internet network, known as Runet.
