RUNET, THE BATTLE FOR THE RUSSIAN WEB
A space for freedom or propaganda
Supporters and opponents of Vladimir Putin are fighting a bitter battle on Runet (the Russian Internet).
The Kremlin is closely interested in Runet, which is now bombarded with propaganda and fake news. But despite repressive legislation and the zealous vigilance of cyber-militiamen supported by the government, independent political video bloggers have millions of followers and weigh in on public issues.
This web series presents those who use this space for exchange, freedom, or propaganda for an unprecedented radiography of Russian society.
