CPJ Internet Channel: Internet law: a good bad example of Russia’s backsliding

13 Jul

Russia’s State Duma has passed a number of new laws in the
past week, all seemingly aimed at reining in civil society and criticism of
public figures. The bills would re-criminalize defamation and impose limits and
labels on NGOs. They follow the introduction last month of excessive fines for
unauthorized protests.
