(6) Russia sucks!
NOTE: A few weeks ago we published an interview with the firebrand Russian historian Yuri Felshtinsky. Now, Felshtinsky’s Live Journal blog has been shut down by the provider because, according to Global Voices, Felshtinsky dared to publish a link to a Russian translation of his book “The Age of Assassins: The Rise and Rise of Vladimir Putin.” Yet one more nail in the coffin of the Russian Internet, driven by proud KGB spy Vladimir Putin while the craven population of the country turns a blind eye. Apparently, if we were on ZheZhe, the lines we’ve just written would get this blog turned off. Yikes.
