Title Censorship, arrests, shutdowns: Putin crushes Russian media Media name/outlet Al Jazeera Media type Television Country/Territory Qatar Date 12/03/22 Description Having taken the country to war, Putin is also pushing it into an information black hole. Journalists are being controlled, silenced and even driven out.
Russia is experiencing a Stalinesque crackdown on reporting that smacks of the Soviet era; the mere mention of the word “war” in relation to Ukraine can now land journalists in prison for up to 15 years.
