Russian Federation: Release activist jailed for satirical sketch with “Putin’s doll”

Index Number: EUR 46/3239/2020

Amnesty International calls for the immediate and unconditional release of 22-year-old civil society activist Aleksandr Shabarchin, from Perm. He is a prisoner of conscience imprisoned solely for exercising his right to freedom of expression. His criminal conviction and that of another activist – 19-year-old Danila Vasiliev who has been delivered a suspended sentence – must be overturned and both must be able to continue their peaceful activism without fear of persecution.
