The extent of Russian on-off polit-ical protests ongoing since De-cember 2011 has astonished ex-perts, politicians and activists themselves. The Russian opposi-tion brings people out to the square notwithstanding the ex-tremely strict or none access to mass media. The peculiarity of the Russian media landscape consists of the coexistence of the government-controlled Television and the uncensored Internet. This gap pushed extra-parliamentary opposition online. How do the new technologies benefits or shortcomings favor or hinder the political activism in Russia?
