Russian “Anti-Fake News” Bill Rushed Through Parliament Despite Vocal Opposition

Russian “Anti-Fake News” Bill Rushed Through Parliament Despite Vocal Opposition By RuNet Echo The Russian State Duma is considering multiple bills of law that would further stifle free speech in Russia’s already heavily restricted internet environment.
