Russia Tightens Restrictions on Internet

Russia Tightens Restrictions on Internet

I wanted to share this article from the Wall Street Journal, about how Russia has passed legislation that aims to further restrict anti-Kremlin dissent on the internet, through blogs and editorial posts. This is clearly meant to stifle Western responses to Putin’s behavior towards Ukraine; it has serious implications for over 3,000 bloggers with laws that force them to revel their identities, once the government has decided the blog has generated enough interest/page views to merit investigation of this kind.
