The government of Ecuador has deprived the founder of WikiLeaks Julian Assange of the internet , who is hiding in the embassy in London. The official communique of the country’s authorities emphasizes that this measure was taken in connection with the failure of Assange to fulfill a written commitment given to the government in late 2017.

Assange earlier promised not to disseminate messages that suggested interference in other states. The founder of WikiLeaks has been denied access to the Internet and the right to receive visitors.

In March, Assange wrote on Twitter that the latest actions of British Prime Minister Therese May against Russia  are “predictable.” May said that Russia is “highly likely” to be involved in the poisoning of Sergei Skripal and his daughter, without any evidence.

How’s that for freedom of speech?

From 2012, Julian Assange has been living in the Embassy of Ecuador in London. He is accused of rape, a predictable act of tarnishing someone’s reputation, and the British police intend to arrest him if he goes outside the embassy.
