Russian multi-millionaire and founder of the censorship lobbying group Safe Internet League, Konstantin Malofeev, has begun a campaign to tighten internet censorship across the country. Malofeev, who has close ties to the Kremlin, will welcome a large Chinese delegation in Moscow, led by China’s head of cybersecurity and the mastermind of its Great Firewall. The Russians want to learn techniques for filtering sites that are considered disagreeable or inappropriate and prevent them from being viewed. He also suggested that there were plans to regain its internet sovereignty and move Western servers containing Russian citizens’ data, such as Facebook or Google, onto domestic territory. Whilst Moscow has said that moving the servers would allow Russian citizens greater security, it would also allow for greater surveillance.
