[At-Large] Ukraine, .RU, and internet governance

Dear all,

Extremely interesting discussion.

Two cents from my side:

1. Ukraine did not ask ICANN to judge who are "good guys, who are bad ones"
and to punish bad ones. Actually, we did not ask for help, but we received
it - thank you all so-so much!

2. All this discussion can't influence the Russian government's decision to
isolate Runet from the Global Internet. I still doubt that they will even
try - after their failure with Era cryptophone in Ukraine.

But we, Ukrainians, do ask you: are you ready for this decision?

During the GAC session at ICANN73 I heard the position of Russian
representative in GAC - I can send you transcripts, if you are interested.

I did not hear the position of Russian representatives at At-Large.

Kind regards from bombed Kyiv,
