Human rights activists call on the Kremlin to release the political prisoners
An unusual flash mob was held over the weekend in central Kyiv by the Ukrainian office of the human rights organization Amnesty International. Titled "Russia Stop Your Foul Play!" the action was aimed to draw public attention to the plight of political prisoners in Russia, and to urge Moscow to end human rights violations.
Anyone willing could kick the puck into Vladimir Putin's net, which is quite symbolic at the time when Russia is hosting Hockey World Championship. Participants were also asked to sign the petition calling on the Kremlin to release all the prisoners of conscience.
