Under one bill, individuals can face fines and jail time if they
publish material online that shows a "clear disrespect for society,
the state, the official state symbols of the Russian Federation, the
Constitution of the Russian Federation, and bodies exercising state
power." Insults against Putin himself can be punished under the law,
The Moscow Times reports. Punishments can be as high as 300,000 rubles
($4,700) and 15 days in jail.

A second bill subjects sites publishing "unreliable socially
significant information" to fines as high as 1.5 million rubles
($23,000). [T]he Russian government has "essentially unconstrained
authority to determine that any speech is unacceptable. One
consequence may be to make it nearly impossible for individuals or
groups to call for public protest activity against any action taken by
the state,"

"Hey Putin... FUCK your elite oligarch circle jerk society,
your pathetic little State, its fake Constitution, dumb ass Duma,
and sissy boy Law Enforcement and Military with their silly hats.
And fuck you too you thieving filthy sheepfucker."
