It is reported that the Ministry of communications of Russia has prepared an order changing the requirements for building telephone networks. The draft document is an important innovation. According to the applicable requirements in each region, anyone working there operator must be its own node (the switch) and joining other networks. There are exceptions for such connected regions, as Moscow and the Moscow region, this infrastructure can be shared. Same situation for the occupied Crimea and Sevastopol. In the new project to the Crimea and Sevastopol attributed to Krasnodar Krai. In fact, subscribers of telephone network of the Peninsula will be allowed to count Krasnodar – General telephone codes, etc.
The change is due to the elimination of the Crimean Federal district and the annexation of the two subjects of the Peninsula to the South. But in other cases, the regulation of telephone connections has nothing to do with the Federal districts.
