Amnesty International delivered a petition signed by more than 336,000 people to Russian authorities on January 30. According to Amnesty, the petition calls “on the Russian President Vladimir Putin to repeal repressive legislation aiming to emasculate civil society, restrict legitimate protest and silence criticism.” A ballerina danced in chains at the delivery, symbolising, said Amnesty, “the suppression of free speech in present day Russia.” Credit: Youtube/Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty
