According to the Russian Orthodox Church, it will provide free “Orthodox Wi-Fi” cleansed of immoral content near churches and in public places in Moscow region. According to the Orthodox priest Roman Bogdasarov, the head of the Russian Inter-religious Council, there are too many threats to users online, including recruitment content for Christian sects and Islamic State, along with porn and “distorted versions of history”.
The priest said that the new Orthodox Internet would contain not only religious websites, but also popular content like movies that “instills in people correct values, like traditional morality, patriotism and protection of family”. In order words, the church will delete everything that “brings evil to people”. For example, the users won’t be able to access any mention of homosexuality.
The head of child-safe Internet vendor Crystal Protection that sets up the new network said that the users will only be able to access information over that Wi-Fi network that religious leaders believe doesn’t “disturb believers’ feelings”, but not the news articles that are “seamy” (including those mentioning a “nontraditional sexual orientation”).
It was announced that the church would be working with local authorities to install the network in public places like central Moscow squares, the center for contemporary art and the art park. The project received a support from the head of the city’s department for multicultural policy, interregional cooperation and tourism.
The industry experts note that Vladimir Putin’s 3rd term in the office has been marked by a turn toward traditional values and tighter regulation of the worldwide web. For example, he introduced legislation requiring popular bloggers to register with the authorities. There was also a new law that allowed regulators to blacklist any website found to contain children abusive content.
