This is shockingā€”even for #Russia! Actor Pavel Ustinov was meeting a friend in Moscow on the same day as one of the recent election protests. He yelled out to his friend and riot police swooped in & arrested him. He was tried for hurting the cop! And sentenced to 3.5 yrs in jail!
#Russia's cops often randomly grab protesters to arrest them. But #Ustinov wasn't even protesting. His sister said he went downtown to meet a friend. There's video of him literally just looking at his phone when riot police tackled him. Court didn't allow it as evidence. 3.5yrs!
"Let's not be silent. Let's talk about this injustice." #Russia's theater community are posting videos (collected in this THREADā¤µļø) to show support & spread the word about Pavel Ustinov's Kafkaesque fate. Cops attacked HIMā€”for doing nothingā€”and HE's going to jail for 3.5 years.šŸ˜§
