<<A group of online activists with obscure-sounding Web site that can be translated from Russian as “No to Vegetables” changed several Google ads on Moscow bus stops with the ones that looked exactly the same but had not-so-subtle political messages.>>

<<The changed ad had different search queries: “Road police without bribes,” “Government for citizens,” “Construction without kickbacks,” “Alternative during elections,”"Fun without alcohol,”"Active civic position” and “Television without lies.” Sentences under the queries read: “You can find it on the Web. But can you find it in your country? It's up to you!“>>
