President Vladimir Putin approved the Strategy of information society development in Russia for the years 2017-2030. The corresponding decree published on the official Internet portal of legal information (29 pages, pdf). The government has been given until 1 October to adopt the list of indicators of implementation of the strategy and implementation plan provisions of the instrument.

The document stresses that the information society of the Russian Federation should be developed, with "priority of traditional moral values and norms of conduct", the "Russian society is interested in obtaining information corresponding to a high intellectual and cultural level of citizens of Russia". The main goal of this Strategy is the creation of conditions for formation in Russia of the knowledge society. Citizens must obtain "objective, reliable, safe information", and any anonymity should be excluded.

Obviously, the global Network does not meet the high criteria, so one of the objectives for the coming years is "to create a system that provides sustainable, safe and independent operation of the Russian segment of the Internet".

For the formation of information knowledge Strategy provides for 19 different measures, including:

  • to pursue activities in the field of spiritual and moral education of citizens;

  • to provide conditions for scientific and technical creativity;
  • to use and develop various educational technologies, including distance learning, e-learning.

Some aspects of the Strategy seem a bit threatening and imply a strengthening of state control:

  • to improve the mechanisms for limiting access to information whose dissemination is banned in Russia by the Federal law and its removal;
  • to improve mechanisms of legal regulation of the media, as well as a means of providing access to information, which in many ways can be attributed to the media, but are not (online TV, news aggregators, social networking, sites on the Internet, instant messaging);
  • to take measures for the effective use of modern information platforms for the dissemination of reliable and quality information of the Russian production.

In terms of the development of the ICT infrastructure of the Russian Federation established:

  • to ensure the use of Russian cryptographic algorithms and encryption in the interaction of government agencies among themselves and with citizens and organizations;
  • to replace imported equipment, and electronic component base for the Russian counterparts;
  • to carry out coordinated actions aimed at connecting to the information infrastructure of the Russian Federation;
  • to provide comprehensive protection of information infrastructure of the Russian Federation from hacker attacks, including using state of the detection system.

The government aims to create the Russian system-wide and application software, telecommunications equipment and end user devices for wide use by individuals, small, medium and large businesses, including on the basis of processing large amounts of data, use of cloud technology and Internet of things.

For the protection of state interests is necessary to provide processing of data on Russian servers, and also data transfer on the territory of the Russian Federation with use of communication networks of the Russian operators.
