The book

Here is another Russia.
Twelve brave men and women pitted against the Putin regime.

Twelve Russians from across the country’s social spectrum all have one thing in common: their participation in the historic March of the Dissidents.

Held in 2007 to protest the eroding state of affairs in Russia, the march was held in flagrant violation of increasingly stringent laws forbidding public demonstrations. Though each of these men and women had personal reasons for joining the demonstration, they shared a belief that the government of Vladimir Putin was betraying the promise of Russia’s future.

Risking the threats and violent retaliation inflicted on Russian journalists who dare to question the powers that be, Panyushkin boldly illuminates the lives and convictions of these twelve brave men and women.
