WAPO oped on Kara-Murza - Russian dissident hero


The truths Vladimir Kara-Murza spoke that Putin wants suppressed

In a CNN interview on April 11, Post contributing columnist Vladimir Kara-Murza said Russian President Vladimir Putin’s regime is “not just corrupt, it’s not just kleptocratic, it’s not just authoritarian, it is a regime of murderers.” Hours later, he was arrested in Moscow on initial charges of disobeying the police and sentenced to 15 days in jail.

On April 22, he was charged with “spreading deliberately false information” about the armed forces of Russia. Under a new law imposed by Putin after his invasion of Ukraine, that act is punishable by up to 15 years in prison. Kara-Murza, a permanent resident of the United States, is currently in pretrial detention.
