Pres­i­dent Vladimir V. Putin dis­solved one of Rus­sia’s of­fi­cial news agen­cies, RIA Novosti, along with its in­ter­na­tion­al ra­dio broad­caster on Mon­day, sig­nal­ing a sig­nif­i­cant re­or­ga­ni­za­tion in state me­dia at a time when Rus­sia’s in­ter­na­tion­al rep­u­ta­tion has faced crit­i­cism over po­lit­i­cal and hu­man rights and Russ­ian in­flu­ence in neigh­bor­ing coun­tries like Ukraine. To me, all that this means is more state control. Putin always increases his own power and justifies it with efficiency.
@curtis what was his reasoning for dissolving RIA Novosti? completely agree that this is a play at control
