It’s critical we learn about the cultural differences between Russia’s people and the west. When Pussy Riot held their artistic disobedience the target was the Russian people. The message was not meant for consumption by the the west. Their plight kick started the wests interest but unfortunately we superimposed our cultural perceptions over their message. This only serves to alienate us from the Russian people regardless of our intent.
This video is a great place to begin understanding and could influence our advocacy in a positive way. #Russia4Love
