Participants of a street exhibition of paintings in support of political prisoners were detained in St. Petersburg

In St. Petersburg, activists Pavel Krysevich and Anastasia Mikhailova were detained for organizing a “spring show of paintings in the open air” on the Arts Square.

According to Readovka, the activists exhibited their works on easels in front of the monument to Pushkin in Mikhailovsky Square, but two minutes later they were detained by the police and dismantled an impromptu exhibition.

According  to the organizers, the action was directed against torture and repression, for freedom of creativity and in support of political prisoners.

  • Oh no, pictures presented in public in Putintopia! The organizers must be kidnapped, starved, raped with garden tools, electrocuted, beaten, tortured and have their eyes gouged out as usual. Mr 85% job approval rating won’t stand for that.
