Submission + - Russian Wiki Shuts Down to Protest Internet Censorship Bill (social-searcher.com)

socialsearcher writes: "The Russian-language Wikipedia website was shut down on Tuesday 10 July. Now it has a stark black line across its main page in protest at a bill, which may be used to censor the Russian internet.

“Imagine a world without free knowledge,” it said in a statement. Russian parliament will discuss on Wednesday amendments to an information law and they “could lead to the creation of extrajudicial censorship of the whole Russian-language internet”."
