The United States is trying to use the Internet solely to achieve its goals, said on Wednesday, August 12, Deputy Head of the Security Council of the Russian Federation Dmitry Medvedev during a meeting on the creation of a regime of equal rights in Internet governance.
“It is quite natural that a number of countries, primarily the United States, are striving to use the Internet as their fiefdom, as a tool to ensure exclusively their goals,” Medvedev quoted TASS as saying.
Also, the deputy head of the Security Council noted that the United States controls the system of domain names and IP addresses. According to him, “it shouldn’t be that way.”
On November 4, 2019, Medvedev compared Internet prices in Russia and the USA. According to him, unlimited Internet in Russia is several times cheaper than in a number of countries, and in terms of the number of smartphone users, the Russian Federation is in the world top 5. “The Russian Federation has very strong schools of mathematics, physics, information technology. IT giants such as Google, Apple, Huawei are fighting for Russian specialists. Of course, this also yields certain results, ”Medvedev said.
