Based on new draft legislation, here’s how Russia would actually build its own, autonomous Internet
According to a parliamentary document, a "group of three Russian lawmakers close to the Kremlin has proposed a tightening of state control over the local internet in response to what they view as “aggressive” U.S. cyber security actions," Reuters reported last week.

The legislation has the support of Russia's main federal censor Roskomnadzor, Meduza reports, while providing some details on what the legislation aims to do: "The Russian authorities are abandoning the global Internet under the pretext of national security, and the country is transitioning to the use of its own domain name system and Internet traffic routing, where only Russian websites will work. The federal media regulator, Roskomnadzor, will be responsible for centralizing the state’s control over this isolated segment of the World Wide Web, and all major Russian tech companies have agreed to the new rules of the game. This scenario is possible, if federal lawmakers adopt new legislation drafted by deputy Andrey Lugovoy and senators Andrey Klishas and Lyudmila Bokova, which they submitted [] to the State Duma on December 14."

Opinion | What We Now Know About Russian Disinformation - The New York Times
In official statements to Congress, tech executives have said that they found it beyond their capabilities to assess whether Russia created content intended to discourage anyone from voting. We have determined that Russia did create such content. It propagated lies about voting rules and processes, attempted to steer voters toward third-party candidates and created stories that advocated not voting.

Canada targets Russian ‘disinformation’ as part of $24M support package to bolster Ukraine democracy | National Post
Up to $2.5 million is going towards 'countering disinformation,' specifically from Russia
OTTAWA — Canada is committing up to $24 million to support “elections and democracy” in Ukraine, including money to counter Russian disinformation, as tensions between Russia and the West continue to rise.
Up to $2.5 million is going towards “countering disinformation,” specifically from Russia. A background document provided by Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland’s office expresses Canada’s position bluntly: “Russia’s objective is to disrupt the stability of the Ukrainian state and throw into question the very legitimacy of democracy in the eyes of Ukrainian citizens.”
Freeland made the funding announcement in Milan, Italy on Thursday at a conference of the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe. It comes as a naval standoff between Russia and Ukraine continues in the waters off Crimea, the territory Russia annexed in 2014 — and as democracies continue to grapple with foreign attempts to influence voters via social media.
