Georgia Among Countries with Free Internet

The Freedom House has published a report on Level of Internet Freedom in 65 countries.

When working on the rating, experts analysed 9 parameters – social networks, cases of obstructing political, public, social or religious content, censorship, number of detained and arrested bloggers, activity of the so-called Trolls, who defend the official positions.

The countries are divided in 3 categories – free (15), partly free (30) and unfree (20).

Georgia is recorded among 15 countries with absolutely free internet space. Armenia is the second country in the region with the same freedom.

Ukraine and Azerbaijan are reported among countries with partly free internet freedom, whilst Russia, Belarus, Turkey and Iran are among unfree countries.

The highest level of freedom is reported in Estonia, Iceland and Canada. The most restricted internet is in China, Iran, Syria and Ethiopia.
