Russia Sentences Kara-Murza, Putin Critic and Washington Post Contributor, to 25 Years in Prison

From a Washington Post story by Robyn Dixon headlined “Russia sentences Kara-Murza, Putin critic and Post contributor, to 25 years”:

RIGA, Latvia — A Russian court sentenced Vladimir Kara-Murza, a longtime opposition politician and Washington Post Opinions contributor, to 25 years in prison on Monday on charges of treason for criticizing Russia’s war on Ukraine.

Amid a draconian crackdown on dissent, it was the harshest penalty yet for an opponent of the war, in a case that Kara-Murza condemned as “unfounded, illegal and politically motivated.”
