Received from Defender Alert Network:
On February 3, a Russian court will decide whether human rights activist Stanislav Dmitrievsky committed a crime when he published articles calling for peace in Chechnya.
If he is convicted, not only could he face up to five years in prison, but a dangerous precedent will be set for all Russians who exercise their right to question and criticize government policies.
This is a critical moment in Russia as a conviction would have a chilling effect on open public debate nationwide.
Please support Mr. Dmitrievsky and take a stand against the further erosion of human rights in Russia by going to the URL below:
