Russia Continues to slide into dictatorship

Lev Navrozov writes

"It is obvious that in 2006, Putin's Russia will continue to slide into a dictatorship by force, not just a dictatorship by fear. A veteran human rights activist has said that a Defense Ministry plan to establish a new combat force responsible for radio jamming devices could mean a return to the Soviet-era practice of jamming foreign radio and television broadcasts. "It appears that our country is sliding back to the times when jamming was introduced in the Soviet Union," Lev Ponomaryov told Nezavisimaya Gazeta. "Control of the dissemination of information via the Internet and radio will become the next logical step."
A newscaster with the last big Russian TV station openly critical of President Putin has been ordered off the air, Reuters reports."
