Rostelecom offered to block DNS addresses of Google and Cloudflare

 According to RBC, Rostelecom, in its letter to macro-regional branches sent on September 8, sent a proposal to prohibit access to public DNS addresses "in order to organize stable access for subscribers to the Internet." We are talking about blocking public DNS addresses Google ( and and Cloudflare ( and, as well as the DoH protocol. The latter is used to encrypt web traffic - when using it, operators providing the user with access to the Network cannot track which sites the subscriber visited. In other words, DoH allows you to visit the resources prohibited by the regulator.

Instead of public DNS servers, Rostelecom proposes to use its own DNS servers or IP addresses of the National Domain Name System (NDNS). According to a representative of Rostelecom, "we are talking about technological work aimed at improving the reliability and optimization of the communication networks." In fact, blocking public DNS will greatly simplify the regulator's control over the Internet.
