Russia ’ s Lower House of Parliament on Tuesday gave tentative approval to draft legislation for the country

to instate measures to isolate itself from the global internet .

The bill is intended to position the country to fend off potential cyber attacks from abroad , particularly from the United States , the legislature said in a statement .

The concept appears similar to China ’ s Great Firewall , which regulates internet operations in view of reinforcing national sovereignty.

Russian internet providers have reportedly been tasked by April 1 , to come up with a way that the country could reliably shield itself from cyber attacks .

The task force has been considering whether the country could completely disconnect itself from the global internet , Russian independent news agency RBC reported earlier .
