This is shocking—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 THREAD⤵️) to show support & spread the word about Pavel Ustinov's Kafkaesque fate. Cops attacked HIM—for doing nothing—and HE's going to jail for 3.5 years.😧
#Russia's "justice" system is full of human rights abusers.
Case in Point: #Magnitsky sanctions list judge ruled in the Kafkaesque case of actor #PavelUstinov. The police beat Ustinov so hard, one cop dislocated his own shoulder. But Ustinov got 3.5yr jail term for cop's injury😱
