In 2010, the Coordination Center for Top Level National Domains established a special award, Virtuti Interneti (Service to the Internet), which is the only one of its kind in the Runet.
It is awarded to representatives of the worldwide web community, business, sciences and the government who have made a significant contribution to the development of the Runet and the global Internet. Candidates are shortlisted by the Programs Committee of the Russian Internet Governance Forum (RIGF), and the awards ceremony and subsequent lecture by the winner have become a tradition for the RIGF program.
The Coordination Center for TLD RU/РФ is guided in its activities by global experience in domain name registration. The Center is actively participating in international events and initiatives for national domain administrators.
The Center works directly with other countries’ national registries. It is a member of global and regional international organizations, where it represents the interests of the Russian internet community.
The Center also organizes annual events in Russia that participants from other countries attend in order to share experience and best practices in developing the domain and address space, as well as internet governance.
The Coordination Center for TLD .RU/.РФ is a member of various foreign and international organizations with which it works closely.
