RIGF 2020 Organizing Committee monitors epidemiological situation

<p>The 11th Russian Internet  Governance Forum (RIGF 2020) is scheduled for April 7, 2020, but due to the  outbreak of the coronavirus the forum’s organizer, the Coordination Center for  TLD .RU/.РФ, plans to revise the forum program emphasizing online  participation of RIGF 2020 foreign speakers.</p>
<p> “We are closely monitoring the epidemiological  situation in Russia and the world due to the outbreak of the coronavirus; the  protection of the health of Russians, guests and participants at the forum is  our top priority. We will try to make participation in RIGF 2020 as safe as possible for our guests and  speakers, and we hope that our technical capacities will allow us to stick to  the principles of multistakeholderism the modern internet governance is based  upon, and we will hear the opinions of all the interested sides: both Russian  and foreign,” said Coordination Center Director <strong>Andrei Vorobyev</strong>.</p>
<p> The RIGF 2020 organizers do not rule out that the forum  will be postponed to a later date.</p>
