The website "Black February" collects information about the defendants in the criminal cases and explains how to help them and their loved ones
Since February 2022, Russian authorities have opened nearly 150 criminal cases against Russians who opposed the war in Ukraine. Most of them are prosecutions for nonviolent actions like posting on social networks about the course of military action, taking part peaceful protests, or posting anti-war stickers.
The site contains materials both on some relatively well-known cases, such as those of Alexandra Skochilenko, Victoria Petrova and Dmitry Ivanov, and on cases that have received much less attention. The list keeps growing.
The creators of the site urge to help the accused and their relatives, and explain how it can be done.
