The Guardian reported in an article of its Moscow correspondent Miriam Elder on new crimes of illegitimate "president" Putin against basic human rights:
Two months later after Putin assumed again the presidency chair, a crackdown began on its critics, as many had feared.
The bill on the control of the Internet, which is another indication of limitation of civil liberties in Russia, is due to be considered by parliament on Wednesday. The bill calls for the creation of a federal website "no" list. Internet providers and site owners would be forced to shut down websites put on the list.
The Wikipedia authors are confident that it will lead to the creation of a Russian analogue to China's Great Firewall. Critics of the bill, including the Russian, believe that it would legitimize censorship over the Internet. In protest, Wikipedia shut down its Russian-language page for one day.
The Russian parliament's consideration of the controversial internet bill comes amid a host of other initiatives that activists say is the biggest attempt since the Soviet era to shut down government critics.
MPs are also due to consider a bill that would oblige non-governmental organizations that receive foreign funding to brand themselves "foreign agents". They are also likely to consider amendments that would boost fines for defamation. Earlier this year, fines for protesting were drastically increased. But the bill about more control over the Internet means that the only source of free media in Russia is causing Kremlin's outrage.
"The Kremlin swindlers have understood that paid commenters and an army of bots can't help them in any way with their 'ideological struggle for the internet'," Elder quoted Navalny's blog, and not said a single word about 35 days-long continuously jamming of the Kavkaz Center by DdoS attacks of Putin's cyber terrorist gang FSB Russia.
With Russia's main state television channels under the control of the government, and its few free newspapers unable to be distributed across a vast country with poor infrastructure, the internet has become a growing source of free information. But this seems to be about to change, writes The Guardian.
It is to be noted on the other hand that the Russian Wikipedia is an unit of the FSB. Several years ago, this KGB department removed from the site all the scientific data about the Siberian language, as Siberians are forced to Russification by Russian occupiers.
Similarly, the Russians under their blood-degenerative "tsars" forbade the Ukrainian language. An article on the Kavkaz Center website contains a typical FSB lies, curses and slander.
Moreover, the KGB "defenders of freedom of speech" are actively supporting the suppression of free speech.
"Will they close the Kavkaz-Center? I would be just glad", a KGB's departmental portal AIS quoted some Russian Wikipedia user.
The slogan of the KGB Russian Wikipedia users illustrating the Elder's article, is the following passage - "Imagine a world without free knowledge".
A significant number of Russians will certainly be just happy to have such a world in which there are no "free knowledge" from the Russian Wikipedia propaganda of KGB.
