Russia extends opera director’s house arrest

To no great surprise, the Russian prosecutor has yet again lengthed the house arrest of Kirill Serebrennikov by three more months, to July.

That will be almost two years that the outstanding artist has been held on what many believe to be politically motivated charges of embezzlement, which he denies.

In the kleptocracy of Vladimir Putin it is almost an honour to be accused falsely of theft, but Kirill’s career is stalled. An international outcry is required.
