did you notice how it happened? how Vladimir Putin, the man, who robbed it’s own country, centralized power, repressed journalists, raised corruption, subjugated all the media, and courts, repressed minorities, put to jail innocent girls, responsible for dead journalists, like Politkovskaia, killed innocent people, including Russians, in Chechnya, Beslan, etc, supported killers of Magnitski(if it’s not him), made new anti-gay laws, laws oppressing freedom of speech, and bureaus, that have power to shut down any web site just because they want to, etc, etc, etc… did you notice how this man became your hero?

Just because you don’t like some steps of USA, it doesn’t mean that you need to like same steps made by Russia!

If Peter have stolen something, it does not mean, that Vasia can steal! It does not mean you have to support Vasia’s robberies just because you don’t like that Peter were doing that. You cannot justify Vasia for that!

“Russia is further constraining access to the internet and freedom of speech, with new laws regarding public use of WiFi. Nikolai Nikiforov, the Russian Communications Minister, tweeted that “Identification of users (via bank cards, cell phone numbers, etc.) with access to public Wifi is a worldwide practice.” This comes on top of their actions recently to block websites of political opponents to Russian president Vladimir Putin, require registration of prominent bloggers, and more.

nice one

but let’s remember, that in the West you still have relatively strong freedom of speech, while in some countries, like Russia and others, with corrupted dictator regimes, all mass media is controlled by government, and they can manipulate their people better. Also, they don’t do posters like this.

this is the link which shows banned #books in #Russia for the #kids of all ages.
It includes Karlsson on the roof for the “info which denies family values and promotes disrespect towards parents”, two more #tales by #Astrid-Lindgren, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, and two classic Russian tales by #Pushkin.

according to the new Russian law, proposed by Putin, in particular

  • any service user (like Diaspora node, facebook, wordpress), any web site and/or page owner should have a known identity, with contacts.

  • user can be responsible for a comment under his post too.

  • user can be responsible for not disclosing information to the publc.

the last point is very interesting. it may mean, that if user did not write something about some event, just because he does not want to express himself, it means police needs to be interested by him.
