The latest frontier of conflict between Russia, China and the West is the Internet, with the Eastern allegiance looking to impose more control over the World Wide Web. The relationship between China and the Internet is well established, with the Great Firewall of China having taken on something of a mystical quality. But there is increasing indication that Russia and China will form a unified front to challenge the existing Western conception of the Internet.
 
Russia legislates on the Internet
 
Indication of this policy is formalized by a recent Russian law regarding data localization of Internet communications. This will come into effect on September 1, with the Russian authorities indicating that the intention of this law is to safeguard Russian citizens from the growing threat of foreign interference.

Here's another article on this story from March 2014.  The wheels have been turning for some time...
 
 
 
March 17, 2014 The United States is planning to give up its last remaining authority over the technical management of the Internet.
 
The Commerce Department announced Friday that it will give the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), an international nonprofit group, control over the database of names and addresses that allows computers around the world to connect to each other.
 
Administration officials say U.S. authority over the Internet address system was always intended to be temporary and that ultimate power should rest with the "global Internet community."
 
But some fear that the Obama administration is opening the door to an Internet takeover by Russia, China, or other countries that are eager to censor speech and limit the flow of ideas.
 
"If the Obama Administration gives away its oversight of the Internet, it will be gone forever," wrote Daniel Castro, a senior analyst with the Information Technology and Innovation Foundation.
 
Castro argued that the world "could be faced with a splintered Internet that would stifle innovation, commerce, and the free flow and diversity of ideas that are bedrock tenets of world's biggest economic engine."
