This paper attempts to explain the Russian media system of today by examining its history and looking at the influence the old Soviet system has left on current Russian media policies.

From the Paper:

"E-commerce is growing in Russia, with 30-40 new websites offering products or service for sale coming online each month. However, this rate is down from 2000. when there were 150 new business websites monthly. Recently some activist groups have expressed concern over the security of e-mail, unsure of who may be intercepting and reading their sensitive material (McGrath 513). This seems to mirror the expansion of the Internet in the United States during the mid-late 1990s. Companies were jumping on the Internet bandwagon, but consumers were unsure of the new services and technology. Afterward, Internet usage and e-commerce grew steadily, and the pattern is likely to repeat itself in Russia during coming years."
