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

Maybe the rest of the world should follow suit and disconnect Russia from the internet...to defend against Russian cyber warfare.

Everyone makes jokes about it, but being able to shut down outside interaction from your internet while still being able to interact with an enemy's is a massive thing.

As a lover or freedom etc i don't think this is great.

As a CS/DOTA player however, I can see some obvious pros to the concept..

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.

Can they just leave it off, please?

and nobody noticed

US military is probably at the border with a Starlink satellite listening to everything.
