Russia to outlaw anonymizing software! I’m not joking

As you may have heard, the Russian Duma has passed a law which lets a government agency to arbitrarily block internet sites for “extremism”, “information harmful to minors” and so on – basically for anything they don’t like. This piece of legislation (if it may be called so – passed by a bunch of unelected, corrupt toadies) goes into full effect on 1 November.

But it’s getting worse now – the Duma is going to discuss amendments to the bill outlawing all anonymizing software!

Smart people will find ways around it, no doubt, but the combination of evilness and meanness of those people never fails to amaze.
