Google exits Russia

Moscow buildingsGoogle Closes Russian offices because of Putin’s blogging and web crackdown

Google is shutting down its Russian engineering offices and relocate 50 employees,   Putin has passed a law that states that all bloggers must register with the Russian Government and any data stored on Russians,  meaning their gmail account, calendar, search history and everything else must be stored only within the Russian Federation borders subjected of course to raids on a whim.

This basically tells Putin that both jobs and technical people will be leaving the country with the policies that are being exercised.
