The publication highlights the major international debates in the field of internet governance that took place in 2014. Particularly, those include NETmundial summit on the future of internet governance conducted in Sao Paolo, Brazil on April 23-24, 2014, and the 9th Internet Governance Forum summit held on September 2-5, 2014 in Istanbul, Turkey. 

The author focuses on the conceptual clash between the multistakeholder approach to the internet governance, and the support of the principle of State sovereignty in the internet, promoted by Russia and some other major actors.
