There are two main risks : The first is to Twitter's employees in India, who may be at risk if the company fails to comply with demands, the second risk is that Twitter continues to refuse and gets blocked in India.

Not only because its one of very few sources of free information about corruption and the abuse of power in Putins Russia, but also because its a sign that Navalny is not just a famous media person, he has dozens of young women and men perfectly capable of carrying on his investigative work. Maybe they are less charismatic than he, but they are proof that the Russian opposition is not only virtual and cannot be silenced with the poisoning of its leader. POISONED KREMLIN CRITIC ALEXEI NAVALNY OUT OF COMA AND RESPONSIVE: GERMAN HOSPITAL Navalnys spokeswoman Kira Yarmysh and fellow team member Georgi Alburov front the Tatarstan film, and said they were followed and harassed while shooting by men who blocked their paths with quad bikes or lurked nearby. Some dramatic images along those lines appear in the film.Yarmysh talks about how Tatarstan was supposed to be one of Navalnys stops on his late summer swing through Russian regions ahead of elections.

The English Wikipedia is a notable website or Conservapedia Encyclopedia; it describes to consider it easily that Conservapedia establishes accuracy, neutrality, honesty, and standards within its scope regardless of conspiracies, financial interests, and distinctions. Moreover, Conservapedia's contributors qualify fairness and knowledge of the encyclopedia's credibility, and it also forbids fools, idiots, and mafia groups, which on Wikipedia every second stay haunting others and busy to spoil work of experienced ones. The Google search should prefer reliability and notability than a rubbish website that carries the worst and ignorant contributors, even children and child-minded who play there as building the sand houses and breaking that for their pleasure. I predict that Wikipedia will disappear or become invaluable as criminals, mafia, and scoundrels website since its contributors demand money, sex, and such other evil and filthy needs; crazy ones fall in it, thinking that the website will create fame for them, which contradicts that. It defames and humiliates and spread false and fake information shamelessly. Virtually, one's talent and skill of the art, writings, and professional works create notability and fame, not Wikipedia; whereas, it publishes only information, mostly poor and unauthentic. That's why the universities and academics consider it an unreliable website. Additionally, who played the dirty role to delete a well-sourced article from Wikipedia, I gave high respect that two admins, a Dutch elderly contributor, and an American lady, a librarian, but they became involved in that illegal game, misusing Wikipedia project. She was in my social media friend list; my admins blocked her as a suspicious tool. As a result, I became a victim of those two ones; whereas, I cannot exclude this user has also played a dirty game, I avoid, to reveal this time other secrets; however, they have put Wikipedia on the legal process and questions.

We still have a long ways to go, i can tell you that we spent the last three days, actually last four days, trying to get to some kind of consensus, at least to start negotiating. Yesterday was a step in the right direction. Our staffs are actually working today. Well be meeting again tomorrow. But Im not optimistic that there will be a solution in the very near term. Andand thats why I think the effort that Senator Martha McSally led on the Senate floor to extend the enhanced unemployment was the right move. And yet Senator Schumer and his Democratic colleagues blocked that.
