The Zadneprovsky district court in Smolensk sentenced Taisiya Osipova to 10 years in prison on charges of large scale drug trafficking. Taisiya Osipova is an activist of the Smolensk division of The Other Russia, a political movement opposing the current government. Her friends and colleagues have regularly stated that the charges were “fabricated” to put pressure on her husband Sergei Fomchenkov, who is a member of the executive committee of The Other Russia.
