Russian State To Lock Down Independent Information Sources

It seems honest or anti-govt news articles are going to be the first casualty of the Russia v Ukraine debacle  :/

Russia's government has escalated its use of its Internet censorship law to target news sites, bloggers, and politicians under the slimmest excuse of preventing unauthorized protests and enforcing house arrest regulations. Today, the country's ISPs have received orders to block a list of major news sites and system administrators have been instructed to take the servers providing the content offline.

Russia enacted its first law permitting official government censorship of the Internet in 2012, when it was claimed its register would primarily be used to combat child pornography, drug use, and material promoting suicide.

It looks like they don't want anyone calling for opposition to the current Govt policy, hardly suprising but I think it undermines their claims to having any sort of democracy.
