How are they going to shut the Internet down ?

Well, I never would have thought that my first post after such a long period of silence would be like this, but this is what bothers me.

Given the current political situation in Russia, in which power belongs to totally corrupt organized crime, the Internet remains the only media where anyone can speak out. For doing so you still may be prosecuted, but this is the only place where one can at least publish an unpopular opinion.

For example, check out the Internet shit storm (available mostly in Russian) on the topic of outrageous stealing as much as $50 billion of budget money under state-approved "make drinking water clean" program.

And so my question is - how are they going to shut the Internet down and how soon ?
