Ukraine Cracking Down on Protesters Restricting Use of Internet

Anti-government protest in Ukraine

Yesterday, the U.S. Senate Committee hearing on the Ukrainian question admired the bravery of Ukrainian protesters and in response today Ukraine announced a new law making all protests illegal. They said that nobody can even purchase a Sim card for a telephone without producing a passport. The government will now decide if one can even have any Internet access that they are now classifying as “benefits” rather than a right of the people.
