Person of the Week: Konstantin Kotov

Amnesty International issues Urgent Action in the case of Konstantin Kotov: Activist Jailed for Peaceful Protests

Konstantin Kotov was arrested on 10 August 2019 and later imprisoned for repeated participation in peaceful “unsanctioned” rallies, a crime under Russian law. On 20 April, his conviction was upheld and his sentence reduced from four years to eighteen months, which he is appealing. He is a prisoner of conscience and should be immediately and unconditionally released. Amnesty International, 19 May 2020
