This report details the problems of restriction of Internet freedom which Russian users came across in 2012. The conclusions made by the report's authors are based on information from the constant monitoring of situations carried out by the Agora Association from 2008 until the present day. 

We based our work on this report on the premise that unrestricted access to an Internet free of censorship is a basic human right, and it is the responsibility of the state to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to freely distribute and obtain information through the Internet.
