Default Russia shuts down internet sites

Garry Kasparovís web site is being banned from being accessed in Russia along with other web sites that Vladimir Putin doesnít admire.

Thatís according to Reuters, which said a new piece of draconian legislation allows the government to prevent access to web sites it doesnít care for.

Russia doesnít care for unlimited access to independent web sites Ė some of which are critical of Putinís grip on media.

Putin has repeatedly denied that he is against freedom of speech, but according to Reuters, state sponsored media helps the government to crush dissent.
