Russia To Prohibit Servicemen From Posting On Social Media

The Russian Federation will soon restrict its military members from posting information on social media, following concern in other developed countries about the same practice.

The government submitted to the State Duma a bill prohibiting servicemen from spreading information about themselves and their colleagues on the Internet and the media. This refers to the location of troops, departmental affiliation and other official activities. The expert says that the publication of such data is not only in Russia, but similar measures are being taken by the military departments of different countries.

The explanatory note to the bill says that the government decided to develop it after analyzing the activities of the Russian armed forces in Syria. The servicemen, the document says, represent a “special interest” for the special services of individual states, terrorist and extremist organizations, and information on the Internet and the media is used for “information and information-psychological impact,” and “for the formation of a biased assessment of the state policy of the Russian Federation.”

A memo went around to the school teachers in my county. They were told that if they posted something on social media that became controversial they would be fired. The school system told them not to post anything. They were not to email children or post on their media either.

From all the damage I’ve read people have done to their livelihood, I am thinking social media is too dangerous for the average person to have.

What stopped you from posting the whole thing?

You're just trying to score traffic for your blog.

You should be ashamed. Shame on you.

The USA needs to do close to the same thing with it’s enlisted men and women. People talk too much on Social Media.
They forget who might be reading and gathering data for nefarious activities. The old saying was ‘Loose Lips Sink Ships!’

The reason I never post a single thing other than updated my photo so people from school and relatives know I’m still alive.
