Since then, Deputy Prime Minister Fedrov has also requested ICANN to shut down Russia's root DNS server, which would take most of the Internet offline in Russia, so DNS expert Ephraim Kenyanito said. 'It's basically like pushing Russia out of the internet,' he said.

'Our mission is not to take disciplinary action, impose sanctions, or restrict access to parts of the Internet,' said Göran Marby , CEO of ICANN, in response to a series of requests. State (PDF file) Official statement has been released.

'It's important that ICANN is neutral and non-political,' Marby said. 'ICANN has no authority to impose sanctions on countries or organizations.' 'Basically, ICANN is not an organization that plays a role in preventing the Internet from functioning, but an organization that was built to ensure that the Internet works.'

According to Marby, Russia's root DNS server is managed by an independent operator, so ICANN does not have the ability to shut it down. In the first place, ICANN's policy is not to 'act unilaterally to interfere with the operation of the Internet in other countries.' So, Marby said, 'If we change our policy and ICANN imposes sanctions on the Internet environment, it will have a devastating and lasting impact on the trust and usefulness of our global system.' Reiterates that it cannot meet the demands of the Ukrainian government.
