Russia's state internet censor has announced that China and Russia will sign an agreement to cooperate in further censoring internet access for their citizens.
Roskomnadzor said it would formally sign the international treaty with their Chinese
counterpart, the Cyberspace Administration of China, on October 20. That date is the first day of China's three-day World Internet Conference, to be held this year in the city of Wuzhen, in eastern Zhejiang province.
This co-operation seems to be
based on the two countries promoting an alternative internet governance regime that is not controlled by the US. An alternative governance would allow national censorship processes a route to getting deeper into the overall control management of the
internet. Eg to disallow censorship busting technology such as encrypted DNS.
