In the temporarily occupied Kherson region, Russians began redirecting Internet traffic through Rostelecom’s communications infrastructure. This was pointed out by the British IT company NetBlocks, which has been constantly monitoring the Ukrainian segment of the Internet since February 24.
Internet access in the Kherson region has been completely cut off since Saturday, April 30, and when the connection was restored, it turned out that the traffic was now passing through Russia.
“Metrics show that Khersontelecom’s traffic has been redirected to the Miranda provider, which serves the Russian-occupied Crimea and is backed by the Russian provider Rostelecom, according to NetBlocks.
Thus, we can conclude that Internet traffic in the Kherson region is now subject to monitoring and censorship, as well as the entire Russian segment of the Internet.
