Drawing, Cigarettes and European Court of Human Rights.

A few days ago Pasha Lebedev, lawer Olga Gnezdilova and I brought the 561_418337case to European Court of Human Rights. The reason for this decision is well known: we have long had sued the mayor’s office of Voronezh, the city police and the Ministry of Internal Affairs after the picket January 20, 2014 against the law about «gay propaganda.» We were beaten. But in Russia, we were not able to achieve justice and punish those responsible.

The second news: after Natasha Tsymbalova I quit smoking. I smoked for over 13 years. I hope I will succeed.

The third news: I finished a new drawing. Every day there are more and more. I like it! My dream is to go to art school in the United States.

Lawyers, Bridegrooms, and a Porn Star


Hello friends! Unfortunately, I am writing this blog not as often as I would like. But I hope that in the future I will be able to write here more often. I’m translating every day documents and media publications to apply for our political asylum. I feel that we have translated about 40% of the total amount of texts now. It is very good. Mostly, we were able to make these translations due to the help of those people who have responded to our request for help. They translated a huge amount of materials into English. I thank them so much for helping us! But we are still looking for people who are fluent in Russian and English languages. We still need help to translate documents for our political asylum cases.

DSC_1060I would like to tell you also, that on October 13th, at the DC Center LGBT organization, we took part in a very interesting and useful round table with a well-known immigration lawyer from Philadelphia – Larisa Tenberg. The meeting held in the «question and answer» format. Everyone had an opportunity to ask questions about political asylum in the United States, and to receive complete and detailed responses. The debate was broadcasted online. For those people who speak Russian, Spectrum Human Rights Alliance downloaded on the internet a video file of the mentioned above round table. It is available at: http://www.ustream.tv/recorded/53917754
