Arina Pan is one of several Conservatoire students in Moscow who have been loaded into police waggons during anti-Putin demonstrations and crammed in filthy jails. Arina, a gifted piano student, received 10 days detention just for walking past the court where Alexei Navalny was on trial.
Arina says: ‘We are proud of our home country and what kind of future we are heading into!’
