There is no right[edit]

The Constitutional speech freedom norm guarantees the freedom of ideas and speech for everyone, as well as the right "to freely look for, receive, transmit, produce and distribute information by any legal way". End of citing.

Speech freedom in Russia is privilege, not right. Since 'by any legal way' means that goverment can freely pass appropriate law to restrict the freedom. One of such silly law is "On mass media".

Maybe there's no priviledge but voluntary rejection of natural rights by some citizens themselves, multiplied by freaky interpreting the same rights by others? In any case claims like "authorities restrict somebody's freedom of speech" cause several other thoughts like "What law allows him/her express this opinion except of freedom" and "what has this one done him/herself against this trend expect of helpless shouts of ostrich's head hidden into the sand?". However, nothing encyclopedic is to appear in this thread.--213.208.170.194 (talk) 10:25, 11 March 2012 (UTC)

Rtnews template[edit]

I've removed the Russia Today news template from the page, as it had raised concern because it pointed to a single trending news page, rather than a selection of trend pages, and after discussion in the appropriate places, it's easier to remove it than it is to add lots of other trend pages, as I don't know of any (don't have time to look). If there are any comments, concerns, or suggestions please reply on my talkpage, as I don't watch this page. Penyulap 02:37, 20 April 2012 (UTC)

Censorship in Russia[edit]

This redirects here, but I think we need a better article. At the very least, a disambig pointing here and to Internet censorship in Russia seems in order. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 08:10, 17 March 2014 (UTC)
