Russia has threatened to block access to YouTube and Instagram if the sites do not remove video and photographs that show a senior government official sailing on a yacht with a billionaire oligarch, who has links with the former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort.
Russia’s state-controlled media watchdog, Roskomnadzor, on Saturday ordered that 14 Instagram posts and seven YouTube videos be deleted that show metals magnate Oleg Deripaska on a yacht with a Russian deputy prime minister, Sergey Prikhodko, and a woman who has described herself as an escort.
Why am I not surprised? Russian government threatens to block the website that allows the exposure of corrupt kleptocrat oligarch friends of Putin.
And yet, you will find unhinged hard leftists who praise Putin as a great progressive. Yup, that homophobic douchebag fascist is a great friend of the left-wing and progressive causes.
Not hard to see why Trump-lovers are also Putin-lovers, given Putin's dishonest, homophobic, fascistic ethno-nationalist ideology. But never fails to startle me that people on the left can delude themselves into believing Russia is a great and benign power standing up to evil America.

Russia is marching closer to totaltarianism by the day. Not a good sign for the future of russian citizens, or the wider world.
