Kravtsov announced the creation of a “white Internet” for schoolchildren in the Russian Federation

Russian Education Minister Sergei Kravtsov said on the sidelines of the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum that Russia is working on creating a “white Internet” for schoolchildren, RIA Novosti reports.

According to the minister, the “white Internet” will also have social networks, but it will have “verified content”.

Kravtsov stressed that the ministry is not following the path of prohibition, but is following the path of the opportunities offered by the digital educational environment.

Earlier, Kravtsov said that Russian schools want to ban access to negative Internet content. According to him, the school Wi-Fi must be configured to access verified content.

He also said that all urban schools in the Russian Federation by the end of this year should be connected to the Internet at a speed of at least 100 megabits per second, and village and rural schools-50 megabits per second.
