Putin Turns On The Rain

There is no censorship in Russia. There is no other opinion too. In 2014, the authorities pulled the plug on the only independent TV-channel Rain. It continues broadcasting through paid subscriptions.

In 2015 Putin declared to ease the censorship burden. But the miracle hasn’t happened. In 2018, the channel launched an action. Everyone could watch Rain if they demonstrated Mr. Putin’s portrait to the web camera. At the Putin`s press conference, a journalist ‘turned Rain on’ with the real president’s face. For two weeks - 14,520,076 Media impressions and plus 3.9 % new subscribers.
