Freedom of opinion in Putin’s Russia

According to Sergej Lebedew, Russia is “sick with fear”. Lebedew analyses
the current situation in novels about Russia’s most recent history; his colleague Dmitry Glukhovsky uses dystopias as a means to the same end. The two well known authors speak about opportunities for political engagement in the Russian Federation. What bolt holes exist? What can literature achieve in the country of propaganda wars?
