Yuri Chervochkin: Victim of the Year

Yuri Chervochkin The Russian business daily, Vedomosti, named Yuri Chervochkin, youth activist killed for his opposition to the current regime, as “Victim of the Year 2007”. Chervochkin’s funeral cried of injustice: “cum tacent clamant”, Vedomosti writes. “Not only rebelling intellectuals but also those wielding the power against which the victims fought have to respect the convictions for which people have shed their lives. Chervochkin’s death will no longer allow ordinary citizens and the authorities to regard opposition demonstrations as mere public relations exercises or art performances. This time, it is for real,” Vedomosti concludes.
