MOSCOW, 5 March – RIA Novosti. By the end of the year, Russian schools will connect to the Wi-Fi network, which will be configured only for access to verified content, said Minister of Education Sergei Kravtsov in an interview with Naila Asker-Zade on the air of Rossiya 24. “We will protect children from the negative information that , unfortunately, it is used, let's say, for unscrupulous purposes, it is categorically unacceptable, “the official explained.
Kravtsov stressed that by the end of the year all city schools will be connected to the Internet at a speed of at least 100 megabits per second, rural schools – 50 megabits per second.
The need to monitor the Internet and identify those who involve children in illegal actions there, Vladimir Putin said earlier this week at a meeting of the Interior Ministry board.
Later, at a meeting with participants in the action “We are Together,” the President noted that, in addition to appeals to children to go out to protest actions, the President also noted that child pornography and drugs are spreading on the Internet, all of which is a source of using minors and making profit. After that, the head of the IC, Alexander Bastrykin, instructed his subordinates to “break into the Internet” and work more actively with digital crime.
