yes, I heard about that.
I thought you were talking about all Russians.
To an extent I am.. Putin has rolled back media freedoms since he took office the first go around. Its to the point now where the only options left
are state run media sites for Russian.
even in crimea we don't know the real situation with the media, internet, mobile networks, electricity and water...
but their access to foreign media is probably limited.
Which prior to the Russian invasion of Ukraine was not an issue.
Do you / anyone else find it confusing for Crimea to declare its independence based on freedom to choose only to see all forms of media / information
not in line with official policy closed? To guarantee rights of minorities only to see an edict that forces all Tartars who are "squatting" to be
forcibly relocated to somewhere else (which has not been identified by the Russian / Crimean government).
Crimean's claim they wanted to have freedoms, yet they have no issues when those freedoms are denied to people who don't share that view point?
When a countries actions are lawful with the support of the people, there is no need to control information. That is done when they want to control
the story in an effort to portray it as something it very well is not.
