Russia’s Digital Iron Curtain

The online space for Russia’s civil society has been slowly closing for nearly a decade, but after the invasion in Ukraine, governmental powers quickly seized control of internet freedoms—banning and blocking at will. What does this mean for the flow of information and the future of the internet both in Russia and internationally? Digital Detectives hosts Sharon Nelson and John Simek welcome Eva Galperin to discuss perspectives on the effects of censorship, Russia’s ways and means of accomplishing its internet restrictions, and how some Russians still find ways to access independent news.

Eva Galperin is Electronic Frontier Foundation’s director of cybersecurity.
