  9. Garry Kasparov Mined Social Media for Evidence for Court Defense

    When they arrested Chess Grand Master Garry Kasparov outside of the Moscow courthouse over the Pussy Riot scandal, perhaps the Russian police didn't realize the prevalence of photography, video recording, and social media. Given that they grabbed him as he was speaking with a reporter on camera, it would be an understatement to say that Kasparov's arrest was widely recorded and reported. Kasparov then turned around and mined social media to defend himself in his trial.

  12. Things We Saw Today: Pussy Riot Sentenced to Two Years in Prison for “Hooliganism”

    Things We Saw Today

    Sigh. After being arrested in March 2012 for a guerilla performance in Moscow's main cathedral, in which the band said a "punk prayer" to the Virgin Mary to protect Russia from President Vladimir Putin, the punk band's members--Maria Alyokhina, 24, Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, 22, and Yekaterina Samutsevich, 29--have been convicted of "hooliganism motivated by religious hatred" and sentenced to two years in prison.

  13. Garry Kasparov Arrested, Beaten at Pussy Riot Sentencing

    In what has to be the most foregone of conclusions, all three members of the Russian punk band Pussy Riot have been found guilty of hooliganism this morning, stemming from an impromptu guerilla performance in a Russian Orthodox church. To anyone who's been following the story -- or just has cliched ideas about the Russian justice system functioning only as the arm of a corrupt authoritarian state -- this comes as no big surprise. One unexpected twist to this morning's story, though, is the apparent arrest of Chess Grand Master Garry Kasparov outside of the Moscow courthouse where sentencing took place. Kasparov has been an outspoken member of the Russian political opposition, which is a pretty good way to get beaten and thrown into a police van on charges of "Meh, it's Russia, we'll figure out what we're arresting you for later."
