Requiring Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to ( be able to ) route Internet traffic locally through the country is a good idea … IF one gets past the fear mongering headlines and gives this idea any real consideration … ( All major countries already censor everything behind the scenes for national security reasons – so, logically they should all be able to make sure their service can be used locally or regionally if a problem with connections to any one of the 200 plus countries on this fixer upper planet occurs.
The best part about this idea is the DOMAIN NAME SERVICE ( DNS Service part of the equation ) Everyone using the internet should be REQUIRED to have their own Domain name, for the same reason you SHOULDN’T use someone else’s phone number … or social security number … or name ….

A more accurate headline would be ….
A Domain Name System (DNS) is Being Prepared In Russia To Support & Safeguard The Localization of Content.
