Stalin Terror echoes in monstrous sentences for totally fictitious ‘Network’ in Putin’s Russia – Human Rights in Ukraine

Russia’s Military Court of Appeal has upheld sentences of between 6 and 18 years against seven young left-wing activists from Penza.  Although there is nothing unusual in today’s Russia about political trials on fabricated charges, this case did stand out since the men were all charged with involvement in a supposed ‘terrorist’ organization that never existed.  The fictitious nature of the so-called ‘Network’ [«Сеть»] was just one of the eery echoes from the height of Stalin’s Terror in 1937 era in this case.  Source: Stalin Terror echoes in monstrous sentences for totally fictitious ‘Network’ in Putin’s Russia – Human Rights in Ukraine
