About

After Vladimir Putin’s United Russia party couldn’t even win a simple majority in rigged parliamentary elections last December, his opponents took to the streets. Some of those first protesters, thirsty for camaraderie, met just steps from the Kremlin in a bar called Masterskaya—”the workshop”—to plan an uprising the likes of which hadn’t been seen since just before the fall of the Soviet Union. Their guns were Twitter and Facebook; their bullets tweets and blog posts. We have dedicated this, our own masterskaya, to tracking and researching the Russian movement against Putin on these and other social media platforms.
