Winnie the Extremist

Cheers to "Ani" for this story. Also, hoping that the Moscow Times was recently bought out by The Onion. This story is a little ridiculous.

According to the Moscow Times, the Russian Justice Ministry recently published an updated and much longer list of extremist materials on the Internet. Among the new materials destroying Russia: Winnie the Pooh wearing a swastika, a self-made template for a future newspaper, comic or other print materials, and a flag with a cross. That's right. Switzerland is destroying Russia. I never bought their "neutrality" cover.

If caught with extremist material, a private individual faces a fine of up to 3,000 rubles ($95) and up to 15 days in jail, while a legal entity could be fined up to 100,000 rubles ($3,150) and closed for up to 90 days. No criminal charges would apply. So look for future posts about people affected by this updated list.



eh, Ern, you wrote about crosses and Winnie, but it seems, forgot this one:

Yeah, a guy who created a blog because the actual "extremist blog" listed by the Justice Ministry didn't yet exist.

Get your head around that one.

This is such an scaring drawing, which makes it cool at the same time.
Winnie the extremist is my favorite issue now on.
