Video: Abuse in Russian Jails Continues

Almost exactly two years ago we released a series of videos leaked to us by Lev Ponomarev and others on YouTube documenting the range of human rights abuses in Russian prisons (one of the videos was even removed temporarily by the censors, a story covered in the Wall Street Journal).  A few weeks ago Al Jazeera uses some of the same footage, along with interviews with a survivor.  Unfortunately it seems that despite increased awareness, the problem continues.
