"The only people who are really affected by this (Kiev government-imposed) blockade are the eastern Ukrainians. And moreover, the people who are the most affected by it – the 1.4 million who are classified as highly vulnerable – are the pensioners, the people who are too sick, too poor or too destitute to go anywhere."

– Interview with Lev Golinkin, author of "A Backpack, a Bear, and Eight Crates of Vodka," on the West's inaction to Ukraine's growing humanitarian crisis

As FCC Readies New Net Neutrality Rules, Telecom Giants Plan Legal and Legislative Offensive

netneutrality
