This guy:

...once said: "give me a man and I will find a paragraph" (meaning an article 
of law to hang/imprison them).

The proposed Bitcoin ban is just that: a law that is not going to be enforced 
for the general population (as there is no way in hell to do that en masse!), 
but will definitely be used against selected few individuals that Russian 
government has beefs with.

Instead of asking how much personal or close family experience with the Soviet 
Union you have, or suggesting you read the article I linked above and educate 
yourself a bit, I guess I'll just ignore that statement.
