Russia’s Online Censorship Has Soared During Ukraine War

From a New York Times story by Paul Mozur, Adam Satariano and Aaron Krolik headlined “Russia’s Online Censorship Has Soared 30-Fold During Ukraine War”:

What’s the difference between Russia’s internet before and after the invasion of Ukraine? The answer: a thirtyfold increase in censorship.

That was the finding of a report published on Wednesday by Citizen Lab, a group from the University of Toronto that studies online censorship in authoritarian countries. The new report was one of the first attempts to quantify the extent of Russian internet censorship since the war began in February 2022.
