The trial against Yulia Tsvetkova, an artist and activist from Komsomolsk-on-Amur in the Russian Far East, is coming to an end. On June 14, 2022, the prosecution requested a jail term of three and a half years under the absurd charges of “production and dissemination of pornography” for posting online her body-positive drawings of women’s bodies. The final hearing is expected to take place on July 12, 2022. Yulia Tsvetkova will make her final statement and the sentence will be published soon after.TAKE ACTION:
