Discussion: Yarovaya Law

"I was going to make a presentation about freedom of speech, but then Yarovaya's law was passed," one of our residents said.

As you probably know, this law makes it a crime not to report information about crimes, requires telecoms to assist the government to break into encrypted messages, children as young as fourteen are now considered old enough to be locked up, proselytizing, preaching, praying, or disseminating religious materials outside of “specially designated places,” like officially recognized religion institutions are considered a punishable crime.

Let's still talk about freedom of speech and how this law affects it.
