Marina Syrova "read aloud from a court psychiatrist's evaluation of the band's leader, Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, whom the doctor had diagnosed with an affliction he identified as "mixed-personality disorder" and characterized as involving stubbornness, "inflated self-esteem," and a "proactive approach to life.""
A teenager or a twenty something with odd personality quirks like a "proactive approach to life". Alert the media !!
Judge Syrova sentenced members of the group which is a collective of artists and members of the counter culture in Russia, to two years in a prison camp for felony hooliganism. This for a performance criticizing Premier Vladimir Putin. Anybody else detect a hint of totalitarianism in this? And Felony hooliganism? Sounds like an average Friday and Saturday night in pubs around England, or most University towns in the US.
Ah, the Sixties, it only took Russia 50 years to get there.
