The United States fears that Russia may cut America from the Internet. According to The New York Times, one should not disregard the presence of Russian vessels and submarines in the waters, where they can damage communication cables. Web connection and telephone communication is likely to be cut in the event of a conflicting situation between Russia and the United States. The newspaper does not specify whether the US government was working to prevent such a possibility, though.
After it turned out that Deputy Prime Minister Andrei Belousov included the Fonbet betting company in the list of backbone enterprises that can count on state support, everyone started talking about these bookmakers.
