In the past 10 years, Russia has joined the leading Internet-powers in several areas, Russian Communications Minister Nikolai Nikiforov said at the opening ceremony of the Russian Internet Management Forum in Moscow.

For one, Russia is at the top among European countries in terms of the number of Internet users and it is taking leading positions in the number of second level domains in national Internet zones .ru and .рф.

According to Nikiforov, to assure dynamic growth on the net, there is a need to get rid of excessive barriers and assure a competitive environment for the Internet business and support local Internet companies.
