Member of the President’s Council RF on the development of civil society and human rights, Igor Ashmanov allowed the West to completely block all smartphones of Russians. This is reported by the magazine “Foreign Economic Relations”.

At the same time, according to him, all the gadgets will not be “bricked” at once.

“It is possible to strike at the Russian cybersphere, but it will be a one-time action,” he said.

“So far, all these actions are going on in the background in the form of attacks, hacks. But a real cyber war on the part of a state that can attack anyone in cyberspace, that is, the United States, such a decision has not yet been made.”
