Putin Limits Freedom of Speech Online

Putin implemented limitations of freedom of speech online this week. He has a history of implementing authoritarian policies in Russia, so it comes to no surprise that he signed a new decree which limits freedom of speech on the internet.

This new policy states that anyone criticizing the government officials of the Russian Federation online can be jailed for up to 15 days in prison.

Of course, jailing people that criticize the dictatorship in Russia isn’t something new, since it is a known fact that journalists and writers have been ‘eliminated’ by the authoritarian regime.
