Alexey Pichugin will celebrate his 54th birthday on July 25. Just like 13 years ago, this last prisoner of the trumped-up YUKOS affair officially declared political prisoner by the Center for Human Rights Memorial (Moscow) celebrates this day in Lefortovo Prsion.
Please accept my warmest wishes for your birthday. I urge you to be careful and stay healthy within the meager opportunities provided. This regime is well aware that its leaders stand no chance of staying free should the democratic changes occur.
