Vladimir Kara-Murza Sentenced to 25 Years in Prison for Criticizing Kremlin and Denigrating Russian Military

Vladimir Kara-Murza, a prominent Kremlin critic, was sentenced to 25 years in prison on Monday by a Moscow court for treason and denigrating the Russian military. His arrest and sentencing have been widely condemned by human rights groups and international organizations, including the US Ambassador to Moscow and the European Union. Kara-Murza has twice survived poisonings he blamed on the Kremlin and in his final statement said he remains proud of standing up to Russian President Vladimir Putin's "dictatorship."
