twenty-five years for
for calling out war
n.b. Mr Kara-Murza stayed in Russia to inform Russians about the invasion of Ukraine under the orders of Moscow. Sentenced to twenty-five years for being critical of Russia’s leadership, an exemplary sentence has been imposed.
As a holder of Russian and British citizenships, it is thought he may be used as a hostage to extract some concessions from London, or to negotiate release of Russians, or pro-Russian individuals captured for espionage in the west.
Meanwhile, day 419 of the war is passing and Ukrainians fighting for independence from Russia are still being slaughtered.
