The truth is we cannot turn a blind eye to the blatant violation of human rights in Russia. What’s happening is not European. Russia’s threats to break ties with the EU, police brutality and the use of violence by law enforcement officers against journalists, opposition members, and civil society activists show the regime’s fear of change.

Russia’s threats to break ties with the EU, police brutality and the use of violence by law enforcement officers against journalists, opposition members, and civil society activists show the regime’s fear of change.
