Russia enacts 'draconian' law for bloggers and online media

BBC 

 

 

 

A new law imposing restrictions on users of social media has come into effect in Russia.

 

 

It means bloggers with more than 3,000 daily readers must register with the mass media regulator, Roskomnadzor, and conform to the regulations that govern the country's larger media outlets.

 

 

Internet companies will also be required to allow Russian authorities access to users' information.

 

One human rights group called the move "draconian".

Just like the NSA "access to users' information."

That is Russia in the pure sense of suppressing the media/news and controlling what can be published.

Communism, socialism, they can and do control.  Freedom of speech, freedom of the press etc are not in their vocabulary
