Russia and China to sign internet censorship treaty

Russia and China are set to sign an agreement for cooperation in censoring illicit internet activity, according to a new report on Tuesday.

The latest agreement, which Russia is set to sign on Oct 20, shows a growing relationship between two powers and Russian moves towards Chinese-style internet crackdowns, according to Reuters. Internet controls have increased under the leadership of both Russian President Vladimir Putin and Chinese President Xi Jinping.

Earlier this year, delegates from the Cyberspace Administration of China (CAC) brought the proposed agreement to Roskomnadzor, the Russian government service that monitors communications and information technology.
