Long story short, Russia is contemplating the hypothesis of domestic regulation, rather than an intergovernmental agreement between major countries involved. Testament to this intent are Russian focus towards cryptographic protection and the plan of the country to substain such autarchics drives with national production of chips and direct control of both analog and digital TV frequencies.
