Putin on guard of the Russian Internet users security

Putin bans web anonymizers.

Vladimir Putin has signed a bill banning the use of any technology or software that allows access to websites officially blocked on Russian territory such as web anonymizers.

The sponsors of the bill were lawmakers from three Russian parliamentary caucuses – the majority party United Russia, the Communist Party, and the center-left opposition Fair Russia.

It has been noted  that bans issued on certain websites by Russian courts and state agencies for publishing extremist or dangerous information were contradicted by the fact that those restrictions could be easily overturned by using readily-available web tools.

Countermeasures that have been proposed include a ban on websites, hardware and software that allow users to bypass the restrictions, especially so-called web anonymizers and virtual private networks that allow users to make it look like that they are operating from outside Russia.

Moreover, the Interior Ministry and the Federal Security Service (FSB) will jointly work to detect engines showing links to banned webpages and issue blocking orders.

Nonetheless, owners and operators of such resources are allowed to contest the ban in court.

The bill does not apply to anonymizers and VPN providers that include websites prohibited by Russian authorities in their own ban-lists, or corporate users who need VPN services for their work.

In 2012, Russia introduced a law allowing state agencies to block harmful or dangerous internet pages. The law addresses internet sources containing child pornography, suicide instructions, promotion of drugs, and those that spread religious or ethnic hatred.

Russia’s media and communications watchdog, Roskomnadzor, operates this ‘blacklist’ making sure that the prohibited information is removed or blocked from the web in the country.

” . . . and those that spread religious or ethnic hatred.”

And just when I thought Russia had more free speech rights than Germany, where you can be locked up for complaining about the muslim rape gangs . . .

BIG disappointment!

Sadly Mr. Putin, also a member of the supposedly illuminated ones, does what he is told, as those pulling the global strings, the Fat-i-can and Kazarian Jews, who have almost completed their one world economy, religion, hierarchy plan, move the last few pieces into place for the final countdown.
The muslim invasion of Europe is another Fat-I-Can plan to divide and conquer, as the muslim religion is nothing more than a controlled branch of BIG MUMMA, their mother.
Read Caesar’s master plan, Divide and Conquer.

John– about Putin– I personally hold you are completely off the mark. Very much like Prof Makow is too … Whereas its a question of ‘to each his own’, have you done deep and committed research about President Putin? If not, I recommend it. Moving away from political personalities, the global cabal and contrived religious divisions and all the other false horrors we live– you may enjoy some research into the Yugas or Ages– which you can find on Graham Hancock’s site, scientific studies along with that of Professor Hancock, considering that due to calculations of earth’s physical history, and… Read more »

Thank you for your most stimulating response; your thoughts are appreciated, and your suggestions re Mr. Putin and the concept of Kali Yuga, of which, at the present stage, nothing is understood, will be examined. Mr. Putin is a different story, for whom one has certain levels of respect, and, one suggests, he will be the man who brings this present global insanity into a nuclear cataclysm, but that is another kettle of fish which few are willing to ponder. As for length of time prior to the cyclic evolution being completed, one, being a septuagenarian, does not think, as… Read more »

Having quickly perused the teachings of the ages, as described in Kali Yuga, one again thanks you for your input, but, much like the teachings described in the Light of Egypt, translated by Thomas Burgoyne, one has found nothing particularly stimulating, edifying or uplifting from it. Yes, without doubt we are at the end of the Iron age, where there is all but total darkness, where the hybrid human race has degenerated to its lowest point, but, as a Christian, we believe in a regeneration of LIFE, through manifestation of revelation, man finding out who not God is, but we… Read more »

BRILLIANT – keeps out the SOROS cancer and his fake-NGO’s.
Would that every country protected itself against this trash of Soros.

Very clear cut parameters and fair, well-regulated to protect all manner of users and quite frankly long overdue. There truly is hope for the world when people realise and understand that the internet, although a global channel of free speech, uploads and downloads– that freedom of speech does come with responsibilities and not only for the many, but for the few too — What is good for the common goose, applies to the oft self-styled kingpin gander too…
