Brickbat: Anyone Else Got Something to Say?


In Russia, a court has sentenced Moscow council member Alexei Gorinov to seven years in prison for spreading "knowingly false information." Charges were brought against Gorinov after he opposed the council holding a children's drawing contest and a dancing festival while the war in Ukraine is underway. "I believe all efforts of [Russian] civil society should be aimed only at stopping the war and withdrawing Russian troops from the territory of Ukraine," Gorinov said.
