Snowden leaks reveal harmfulness of US monopoly on internet – Russian minister

The minister also mentioned that the creation of a “direct undersea cable connection between BRICS countries” had been discussed at the Moscow meeting.

“We just need the stable and reliable basic internet infrastructure that’s not dependent on this or that existing internet hub and somehow could be influenced by this or that geopolitical decision,” he said.

Nikiforov also expressed hope that laying such a cable “could be one of the first infrastructure projects funded by the BRICS Bank,” which is now being set up by the block’s member states.
