Yury Igorevich Mosha (Russian: Yuri Igorevich Mosha, born December 17th, 1975[1], in Novorossiysk, Krasnodar Krai, USSR) – a Russian public figure, blogger[2], political activist, and immigrant.

Yury Mosha is fighting for Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act reform[3]. He has worked with journalists, U.S. Congressmen and U.S. Senators for change. He is the founder of the Online Committee against Slander, Discrimination and Insults. This was covered in a documentary called The Russian Soul[4].

Yury Mosha is the CEO of Second Passport and e-PR Inc.


From 1993-1998, Mosha attended Kuban State Technological University (Novorossiysk branch) and received a degree in State and Municipal Management[1].

From 1995 to 2006, Yury Mosha was the founder and head of the Propaganda publicity advertising agency.

In 2001, Yury gathered information about the persecution of the Meskhetian Turks and “was one of the founders of the Novorossiysk Human Rights Committee”[5].

In February 2004, with the support of the Russian NGOs and the United States, the Novorossiysk Human Rights Committee and the International Organization for Migration launched a program to relocate the Meskhetian Turks from Krasnodar Krai to the United States[6].

From September 2005, nearly 21,000 people had applied for the program and 5,000 people had moved to more than 60 American cities such as Portland, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Knoxville, and Kent. From 2014, 2,500 Meskhetian Turks lived in Dayton alone.

Yury Mosha’s human rights work to combat racial discrimination in Krasnodar Krai led to Yury’s immigration to the United States due to political persecution by the Russian government.

In 2004, Yury led the Krasnodar Krai government in the fight against the illegal transfer of Novorossiysk’s Zarya TV to RTN.

In 2009, Yury Mosha was one of the first to support the Russian police officer Alexey Dymovsky, who posted a YouTube video directed at the Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin and Russian officers.

In 2011, Mosha moved to the United States for permanent residence[1].

In 2018, he asked the U.S. Congress to include the search engine Yandex in the list of companies subject to Russian Sanctions[8].

In 2018-2019, he sued Yandex and Google in New York courts to protect the honor and dignity of citizens.

In 2019, he set up the “Committee against Internet Slander, Discrimination, and Persecution.”

In 2020, he has spoken to media outlets such as Media Post and Law Fuel about repealing Section 230[9],[3].

Suozzi, Congressman Sean Patrick, Congressman Hakeem S. Jeffries, Congressman Anthony Brindisi, Congressman Tom Reed, and Congressman Ted Case. He received support from Senator Patrick J.
