Medvedev: democracy crucial for Russia’s development

http://rt.com/Politics/2010-09-10/me...al-russia.html

Internet's role in democracy

The president was also asked to comment on the place of the Internet in the development of democracy, particularly – on the censorship in the Russian segment of the worldwide web.

The Russian government, “unlike governments in some other states", does not deal with the Internet at all, Medvedev stressed. The web leads its own life under its own rules – “same as in other countries”, the president noted.

“Public opinion on most crucial issues is being found out today via informal voting” and Internet discussions, he said. As proof of his claim, the head of state – known for his passion for modern electronic gadgets – read out comments that were sent by Internet surfers while the meeting was underway. In real time, bloggers were giving their opinions on the issues that the president was discussing with political scientists.

“So far, this process has not been institutionalized, but it will be sooner or later… Ultimately, it will become direct democracy,” he said.

The president is also confident that it is not politicians who should change the web, but the other way round – public servants must take this rapidly developing sphere into account.
