Russian Cold War Strategy (No Porn or Western Influences….?)

Belarus Suffers Porn Shortage

 by Katya Tylevich

In an otherwise alarming report about Internet crimes, this hilarious bit of information from news site Lenta.ru: at present, there’s no porn of any kind on Belarusian Internet servers. That’s right, zero porn. This according to officials from the country’s Ministry of Internal Affairs, who claim instead that the majority of Internet porn comes from countries like the United States. Ironclad logic here: the U.S. has a lot of porn, so we must have none. If this is some sort of New Cold War strategy, we’re not sure to whose advantage it’s working.

This Russia.com site is always worth a look. Crisp, provocative and uniquely Russian. I like the edginess of the writing and yes they throw in some naughty tintillation here and there for men/women. The topics run the gamet, and you know where you are, in their world. Having been to Russia in the early 90’s to provide training, I find the writing intriguing and thought provoking.
