  1. It’s almost as if Russia doesn’t value civil rights…

  2. This is the best tl;dr I could make, [original](https://thebarentsobserver.com/en/arctic/2019/11/russia-shuts-down-arctic-indigenous-rights-group) reduced by 67%. (I’m a bot)

    > Moscow's city court has ruled to disband an indigenous people's rights group almost 20 years after its founding, the latest in a series of NGO shutdowns that critics see as retaliation for their activities.

    > Russia's Justice Ministry had asked the court to shut down the indigenous rights group over "Multiple" violations of the country's NGO law, according to Kommersant.

    > CSIPN/RITC's director Rodion Sulyandziga called the ruling "Part of a trend to shut down organizations undesirable to the authorities." The court's decision comes less than a week after Russia's Supreme Court ordered to disband a veteran activist's 22-year-old civil rights group.

  5. Sry but this is fake news.

    According to Putinpedia.ru this happened:

    >In spite of the bad bad bad Imperial USA indigenous tribes have suggested to leave their rights and join forces with the glory fame of mother Russia. Our god Chancellor and best president since Stalin, Vladimir Putin, accepted this wise and unmatched offering. It “broke my heart that indigenous people are sufferring because the evil americans are destroying our country”, he admitted, “but I will fight till the very end to make sure mother Russia will survive”.
