+Grim Reaper 6 Posted February 11 #1 Share Posted February 11 Russia has a secret unit tasked with scouring the internet for insults about President Vladimir Putin, including mentions of him being a "bald dwarf" and "thief", according to leaked documents. Details of the team were found in data from Russia's media regulator, Roskomnadzor, which was stolen last year by Belarussian hackers and handed to Russian independent media outlet iStories, RFERL, and others. According to the reports, the federal agency compiles reports on all "negative publications" about Putin and briefs the presidential administration and Russia's security services. They are particularly concerned about rumors about Putin's ill health, the iStories report says, and claims the president has "dementia" or "mental illness." Staff at the agency will reportedly hunt down insults about Putin classed as "negative discrediting information", including labelling the Russian president a "thief," or a "bald dwarf". https://news.yahoo.com/russian-censors-scour-internet-claims-130437586.html 3 1 Top Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
