Since the Fukushima disasters, Russian officials have started multiple programs to censor online content and create PR efforts to hide some of the worst nuclear problems in Russia. Activists discovered multiple large contracts that are quite similar to the censorship and PR campaign in Japan. One of the efforts involved purging a certain percentage of the web search results that were unflattering to the nuclear industry. Other efforts included complex efforts involving teams of sociologists, graphic designers that would feed the media stories with a pro-nuclear spin and use the arts to push their agenda.
What makes all of this even more troubling is that it is being funded by taxpayer dollars. The very people who are being lied to and having their voice eradicated online are paying for their own deception and oppression. This appears to be the case in Japan also.
