Russian Bullshit

Monday, February 10th, 2014

The board of directors of Tricolor TV, a satellite TV bouquet in Russia, has decided to drop the channel Dozhd from their offerings, citing the most recent activity they had that pissed off Putin and his bully government: a poll regarding the siege of Leningrad during World War II, know as “the great patriotic war” during Soviet times.

If they really want the world to take them seriously, allowing for a free expression of ideas and opinions can only help their further their objectives. But this is Russia, so fuck the people. We are the boss of you.

Eutelsat, the carrier of the Tricolor package at 36 deg. east, should reach out to Dozhd and make space available elsewhere.
