I do not think so. It is very confused, mixing many different things
and it does not seem to display a great knowledge of the DNS. In the
end, I still do not know what is exactly in the russian law. If it is
just deploying lying resolvers, it is already dones in most west
european countries.

Doing so in DNS resolvers would also require addressing PKIX
issue. Does the law also mention a national CA, that every machine
will have to add in its certificate store?
