Summary/Abstract: Russians who are currently behind bars for political reasons are a good representation of the country that Vladimir Putin’s Russia has become. They are being punished for exercising their fundamental freedoms, for exposing the web of corruption on which the state is built and for threatening local oligarchs loyal to the Kremlin. Often, they are imprisoned for all three.
