Russian president warns his people against using Internet

Russian President Vladimir Putin calls the Internet a CIA project.

The Russian leader has warned his people against making Google searches as the CIA has controlled the Internet from the start. Putin emphasized that every entry made into Google goes through servers in the United States. He stressed that that the Internet was a special project, which the CIA has been developing to this day. Putin's comments come on the backdrop of revelations made public by a former NSA contractor. Edward Snowden exposed a massive U-S surveillance campaign, which infringed on the personal liberties of people around the world, including diplomats of American allies.
