BBC: Belarus puts restrictions on foreign internet sites

A new law in Belarus will restrict access to foreign websites and force internet clubs and cafes to report users visiting sites registered abroad.
The law says people offering internet services to the public - whether at a cafe, club or in their own home - will face fines if their customers visit foreign websites and such visits are not properly recorded and reported.

Anyone found accessing "extremist" or "pornographic" websites will also be fined, the law says.

President Alexander Lukashenko has been in power in the ex-Soviet republic since 1994.

His muzzling of the opposition has been condemned by the EU and US, who have imposed travel bans and asset freezes on him and dozens of his associates.

I do not think they deserve a government like that... I may have many ojections against the establishment I live in, but at least I'm free to express them and to look around the globe.
