"Messages please!" Russia goes full authoritarian on citizenry




Police officers in Moscow today are stopping people, demanding to see their phones, READING THEIR MESSAGES, and refusing to release them if they refuse. This from Kommersant journalist Ana Vasilyeva. https://t.me/Crexcrexcrex/3059

1. The cat is out of the bag. The genie is out of the bottle.

The people of Russia protesting is showing bravery and courage. God bless them and protect them.

3. WTF are they going to do with all the "dissidents?"

They've already arrested thousands of protestors. Now if they're "proactively" nabbing free thinkers off the street, where are they going to warehouse the tens of thousands more people who engage in freedom of thought?

Perhaps they'll start executing them. Shudder to think that.

Or is the idea just to send the message to the populous that you better not dare to exchange any messages that are contrary to the government's ideology?

Either way, that country is going to hell in a handbasket.
