1. A snip from the article linked to the tweet.

Prior to his predawn arrest on August 2, Yegor Zhukov, who studies at Moscow’s prestigious Higher School of Economics, had already drawn a sizable audience on YouTube, where he had posted a series of video blogs in which he vented against President Vladimir Putin and promoted the opposition protests across the country.

The last video he posted before being detained had been viewed more than 300,000 times as of December 5. The videos posted to his YouTube channel, by his supporters and allies, since his arrest have garnered hundreds of thousands more.

Zhukov now faces as many as four years in prison -- the sentence prosecutors have requested for the charges of inciting extremism online. He is scheduled to be sentenced in the case on December 6 at the Kuntsevo District Court in western Moscow.

In his final court appearance before his sentencing, on December 4, Zhukov made an impassioned appeal to his supporters -- and offered an indictment of Russia’s political system.
