Russia starting to crack down on bloggers who dissent


Kathy Lally as an important Washington Post story Wednesday indicating that Russia seems to be starting a crackdown on bloggers who try to incite opposition to Putin, as in this story

The blogger is Arkady Babchenko.   There is little criticism of the Russian government in establishment media, including TV.

There are more details in the Moscow Times, here.

Babchenko has authored a book about fighting in the Chechnyan wars.
