Elections this past Sunday returned Vladimir Putin to Russian presidency; more than 60 percent voted to give Putin back the office he held for most of the past decade. International and domestic observers, however, claim the election was marred by fraud; right now thousands of protesters are filling Moscow’s Pushkin Square, promising a prolonged demonstration.
A Brandeis twist: there’s an alum right at the heart of the protest movement and she’s speaking on campus tomorrow night!
Tuesday, March 6, come hear Olga Golovanova ’10, a political activist just returned from demonstrations against the Putin regime inMoscow.
Golovanova’s talk, “The Snow Revolution and the Thaw of Putin’s Regime,” will take place in Rapaporte Treasure Hall at 7 p.m on Tues, March 6. Russian refreshments will be served.
The talk is part of Russian Culture Week, with events all week.
