Big Brother enters from back door

Russians need protecting from foreign devils, says Vlad;
Russian lawmakers proposed cutting foreign ownership in Russian media assets to 20 percent in an attempt to limit outside influences and protect Russia's "information sovereignty", a copy of a draft law showed on Wednesday.
...."(It) is directed first of all at guaranteeing Russia's information sovereignty and decreasing the influence from abroad on events in the country which is an information war launched against our country."
Usually suspected;
The bill was introduced by deputies from Russia's Communist Party as well as Just Russia and the nationalist LDPR. They were not available for comment.
No, but anyone challenging the official party line will find themselves being available for comments to the authorities.
