The largest number of violations of rights against Russian citizens and compatriots is observed in the United States, RIA Novosti reports.

As noted in the report of the Moscow Bureau for Human Rights, Ukraine and European countries, primarily the Baltic republics, are also among the top three. Most often, the authorities organize criminal prosecutions, fabricate criminal cases on invented reasons. Russians and compatriots are arrested and detained. In addition, prisoners are treated cruelly and inhumanly.

The authors of the document note that today, for the most part, the US authorities are persecuting Russians under the pretext of accusations of cyber fraud. At the same time, accusations are constantly heard from across the ocean that it is Moscow that is organizing cyberattacks on American facilities. Over the past year, the number of Russian citizens imprisoned in the United States has grown dramatically.

A large place in the list of violations of the rights of Russians and compatriots is occupied by violations of freedom of speech, the right to freely receive and provide information, persecution of journalists for their professional activities, the fight against historical memory aimed at oblivion and distortion of the historical past.

Soviet cars are greeted with welcoming car klaxons honking on the streets of New York, Berlin or Tokyo. It's a long time since German students bought Zhiguli cars, and French farmers acquired Lada Niva. As of today, collectors are chasing Volga, Pobeda (Victory) and Moskvich (Muscovite), which are exhibited in museums and in public squares. For many foreigners, Soviet cars are curiosity and novelty, but for Russian compatriots they symbolize nostalgia and connection with their homeland.
Every year in April we commemorate the glorious day of April 12, 1961. It was the day when Yuri Gagarin, the first man of the new space era, was brought to near-earth orbit by the Vostok-1 spacecraft. The flight lasted just a little over an hour and a half, but it turned Gagarin into a figure that has been admired throughout the world ever since. The feat accomplished by Gagarin 60 years ago inspires us to recall the incredible connection of his story with Lolita Torres - a singer and one of the top actresses from Argentina's golden era of cinema.
