They should learn from US that this doesn't work. Why don't they simply label them as whacko and conspiracy theorists and let them run their mouth off. It's not like they can do anything. By blocking them, they just give credibility to what they write. The freedom of speech in US is such a great tool of mass control. See, if things were bad, we wouldn't let you speak, like the Russian or Chinese do, so clearly, we are the good guys, no story here, move on. So much better approach. Same with freedom of movement. Yeah, you can go anywhere you like, but please make sure you get vaccinated for this two page long list of deadly diseases and check with the embassy for the terrorist activity in your destination. Oh, you changed your mind and will go to Hawaii? Good. Why deny issuing passports when 96% of people won't even ask for them with just a little bit of scare tactics and squeezing the extra money out of population. Then just cut back vacation days to 0 and no problem.
Russia is so backward. Freedom propagandized is the key to real enslavement.
