Russian Antiwar Dissident Boris Kagarlitsky Freed from Detention

HeadlineDec 13, 2023

In Russia, prominent dissident and Marxist theorist Boris Kagarlitsky has been released from jail. Kagarlitsky was detained in July and accused of “justifying terrorism” for comments he made about the war in Ukraine. His arrest was met with international condemnation. A court this week found him guilty and fined him the equivalent of $6,600 but allowed him to walk free. Prosecutors had been seeking a five-year prison term.
