The wheels of justice turn in different directions

nashiToday, a municipal Russian court rejected allegations that Nashi, the pro-Kremlin youth group picketing the house of Aleksandr Pordrabinek, who angered them with his anti-Soviet rhetoric, had not broken any laws. In the meantime, a Presidential council focused on the development of human rights and civil society asked the attorney general to look into possible legal infractions. Oh, and Prime Minister Putin, in a rare move, criticized Nashi for being slightly out of control, while United Russia, Putin’s party, has been trying to fire the head of that Presidential council, Ella Pamfilova, a prominent human rights activist.

Podrabinek, meanwhile, remains in hiding.
