The long slide into deep doo-doo continues

Following up on my April 19, post.

Three Duma deputies have submitted a bill that would require Russian internet providers to disable all services (such as anonymous proxies and VPNs) that refuse to prohibit access to websites and applications blocked by Russian courts or other de-facto censors. Russia would first request these proxies, VPNs and such to block access to the “outlawed” sites and apps. Naturally, most would refuse as this is impracticable, so the Russian censors would then tell providers to block them.

I have to keep reminding myself that my bile is too precious to be wasted on mannikins, no matter how harmful. But the harm inflicted cannot be simply laughed off.
