Dear all,

Once again thank you very much for all your support! We in Ukraine are
really impressed by all your words and decisions - we urgently need your
help and support just now!

I will do my best to participate in the joint GAC and ALAC session today.

On Monday I participated in At-Large Leadership session under bombing alert
and with problems with Internet (just now I also hear bombing alert).

That is why I am writing to you beforehand about my point for AOB:

2019 year Russian legislation on sovereign Internet and rumours that Russia
will disconnect itself from global Internet on 11 March 2022.

(you can read more about this legislation here:

Yes, I know that Russian representatives say that the news regarding the 11
March disconnection is fake, but they have said that all warnings from our
Western partners on the Russian war against Ukraine are also fake. It's up
to you: to believe them or not.

>From my side I am sure that they will not disconnect - not because they do
not want, but after the failure with their famous Era cryptophones in
Ukraine (

Nevertheless, 2019 legislation went into force, and I am not sure that
ICANN and the worldwide Internet community are ready for ALL consequences.

In case I can not participate in the session in person, I would kindly ask
Joanna Kulesza to be my proxy.

Thank you very much in advance,
Kind regards,
Oksana Prykhodko,
director of iNGO European Media Platform,
