<nettime> black ribbon

The Russian Supreme Court upheld yesterday the decision of a Perm
regional court, which had found blogger Vladimir Luzgin guilty of the
"rehabilitation of Nazism" for reposting a text on social media that
described the invasion of Poland in 1939, TASS reports. The regional
court had also fined Luzgin 200,000 rubles (around $3,000).

According to Novaya Gazeta, the text described the joint invasion
of Poland by the USSR and the Third Reich in September 1939, which
followed the signing of the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact. The Pact, a
neutrality agreement, included a secret protocol that carved up much
of Eastern Europe into Soviet and Nazi "spheres of influence."
