The Kremlin versus the Internet: the end of Russia’s zone of freedom?

As a result of this pressure the information policy of several popular portals (including Lenta.ru, Gazeta.ru, Newsru.com) has been changed and the social media service Vkontakte has been taken over by a company that has ties with the Kremlin. Since March this year several popular opposition portals (Grani.ru, Ej.ru, Kasparov.ru, Alexei Navalny’s blog) have been blocked in Russia. Another consequence of the Kremlin’s policy is the fact that current leading opposition bloggers (Oleg Kashin, Andrei Malgin and Rustem Adagamov) have emigrated from Russia and blog from abroad.
