World Policy On Air, Ep. 44: “RusNet on the Offensive”

World Policy On Air is a podcast from the pages and website of World Policy Journal.

On today’s podcast, Andrei Soldatov argues that despite the Kremlin’s aggressive attempts to shut down opposition voices online, the lack of hierarchy and rapid pace of change on the Internet may ultimately undermine these efforts.
