We provide informational support to the group Pussy Riot in the English language. We gather and translate into English news about the group http://eng-pussy-riot.livejournal.com and we broadcast via Twitter https://twitter.com/Eng_Pussy_Riot from the courtroom.
We see serious danger in the political line being pursued by Vladimir Putin, thanks to whose twenty-year rule contemporary Russia lacks genuine courts, independent mass media, honest elections, political opposition and civil society, and also has seen the complete fusion of the institutions of state and church. Such democratic values as women's rights and freedom of speech are completely devalued in the current moment. All of this, and also the lack of any realistic domestic economy (Russia is oriented only around the export of oil and gas), the lack of a middle class, and the appalling economic stratification in society, is leading Russia toward a large-scale rebellion on the order of the Arab Spring or the 1917 Russian Revolution.


Putin's repression of the art-punk-feminist group Pussy Riot is a concrete example of the complex of problems plaguing contemporary Russia.
