Very handy thing to have in case the rest of the world try to expose Putin's bad behaviour... Just turn the source off.....In my limited knowledge of the internet, surly if you can disconnect from the rest of the world that makes you more vulnerable to a total collapse of your system if hacked.... because there would be no cascade effect on the rest of the world . Unless your plan is to infect the internet with a kind of suicide virus that cripples the world outside , while your system ( while not in the loop) is free from the effect....or have I been reading too many spy novels
I call bullshit. A chunk of military oriented online games are from Russian companies, and if the servers had gone down for any noticeable length of time, the subreddits would be screaming about it. They aren't. I doubt Putin's cleptocracy could tolerate their money sieves being down for long.
