NOTE: Oborona held a protest march calling for the freedom of political prisoners such as Mikhail Khodorkovsky on May 31st. A vigorous Oleg Kozlovsky led the march and spoke to the press, his blog has the details. So much for the attempt to intimidate him with imprisonment. Take that, Mr. Putin. You can't keep a good man down! Perhaps, we see Russia's Gandhi taking his first steps towards history.
