Putin famously labelled the internet a “CIA project” much to the dismay of its founder, and has been steadily taking action over the years to restrict internet freedom in a number of different ways. A law was approved to require blogs with over 3000 daily visits to register as “mass media”. Another clause requires media and social websites to save user information for at least 6 months. In a recent study that examined Russian attitudes towards internet regulation, it was found that nearly half agree with Putin.
