Pussy Riot attacked again: Is Russia doing enough to preserve true religious freedom for its citizens?

  • No, Russia is not doing enough to preserve religious freedom for its citizens.

    No, Russia is not doing enough to preserve religious freedom for its citizens. Russia is being way to laid back about how they handle there religious policies and when that to make any actions, they are far to strong and negative against all of there citizens. Freedom of religion really doesn't exist for Russian citizens even though they will have you believe it does.

  • No, not at all.

    The thing with Russia is that they have a dictator leading their country, and he is basically a walking human rights violation. If Vladimir Putin remains in power, we can expect to keep seeing freedoms eroded in Russia. Pussy Riot is unfortunately just the tip of the proverbial iceberg in this case.

  • Russia is doing plenty to protect certain religions.

    Putin is now famous for saying that outsiders can conduct their strange habits outside of Russia. Russia does not need to adapt to their practices. Russian officials are part of a very stringent history that is not apt to change. Pussy Riot is trying to create rapid change through their actions. They will likely not be notably successful, but will pave the way for civil rights activists that follow them. Religious freedom should free up all religions, not just some. Russia has failed to apply that to their policy.

  • They don't care.

    No, Russia is not doing enough to preserve true religious freedom for its citizens, because we all know that there is not religious freedom in Russia. Russia has taken a few steps backwards in the last 10 years, towards the U.S.S.R. They have a strong history of imprisoning dissidents, and that has gotten worse over the years.
