The Sunday Photos: Oborona Celebrates Sakharov’s Birthday


Photos of Oborona members observing the birthday of dissident Andrei Sakharov, one of the greatest Russian patriots of the 20th Century (Праздник Свободы – Сахаровская Маёвка) this past May, from the Oborona website:

The sign notes Sakharov’s birthday on May 21 (he would have been 86 this year) and quotes him as follows: “I stand against totalitarianism, against the violation of human rights, against enslavement.” More timely words were never spoken, as Oborona clearly understands.

He remembers. Do you?


She remembers. Do you?
