Change Will Come to Russia—Abruptly and Unexpectedly

From a Washington Post story by Global Opinions Contributor Vladimir Kara-Murza headlined “Change will come to Russia—abruptly and unexpectedly”:

Editor’s note: In April 2022, the Russian police arrested opposition activist and Post contributor Vladimir Kara-Murza for criticizing the war in Ukraine. On Sept. 4, authorities at the Moscow detention center where he has been held for more than a year informed his lawyers that he was no longer in custody there. Though his precise whereabouts are unknown, it is likely that he is being transferred to a Siberian prison where he will be expected to serve out the rest of his 25-year sentence. What follows is the translation of a Russian-language text he was able to write before his departure.
