At present, the international community is exerting pressure on Russia, and this includes the media use of the so-called aggressive communication style against Russia, as a result of which the media environment has ceased to be a platform for rational discussion or equal national media players in the international digital space. How can the Russian media industry live and develop under the conditions of a de facto digital boycott on the part of the international community? Who creates government information policy in the era of digitalization and how? How should digital interaction between the state and society be structured in terms of information exchange?
