Living under house arrest in Putin's Russia – BBC News

Russian activist Anastasia Shevchenko is facing six years in prison for her opposition political activism.

Anastasia has been under strict house arrest awaiting trial for over a year – banned from communicating with anyone other than officials and her relatives.

Those conditions have just been eased slightly, allowing her to talk about her case to the BBC for the first time.

She’s accused of links to a pro-democracy group Open Russia UK, which has been banned in Russia as ‘undesirable’ and a “threat to state security”.

BBC Moscow correspondent Sarah Rainsford went to meet Anastasia.

    We have our own political activist being punished, bullied and held in jail for telling the truth here too, called Julian Assange. But of course, you won’t hear the bbc reporting on our government doing this to freedom of speech in England. So much for bbc journalists ignoring their own. Shame.

    Nothing positive ever happens in Russia according to the BBC propaganda. I wonder how our press and government would react to a political movement here that was registered in Russia?

    Does anyone find it hilarious that a woman without any weapons is labeled as a threat to state security? How vulnerable is that state?
    No wonder we have such a close relationship with Russia. Like father like son.

    So she's anti Putin, on house arrest for it, but allowed to talk to the BBC? For starters, that last part seems strange. Second, it's surprising she wasn't disappeared.

    Although she's right that there's a major lack of democracy there, it leads to a feeling that there's a piece missing that we're not being told about.

    But as always, I'm just some dude on the internet; NeverMetTheGuy.
