Update from Moscow, December 14, 2010

We spent the day talking with both Russian and Western media about what we have observed as we have met with human rights defenders on the front lines here in Russia. Click the link below for the Washington Post Article.


We also had a very productive meeting with the U.S. Embassy officials, in which we made our position clear that we believe human rights must be an important part of American foreign policy. As the U.S Congress debates the New START Treaty this week it is important for Members to know who they are negotiating with.

We are planning to be at the courthouse all day tomorrow for the reading of the verdict and remain hopeful that we will have good news to report.
