Domestic violence has been decriminalized in Russia
36 months ago, Alena Popova received a upsetting telephone call. A friend that is pregnant been beaten by her spouse and miscarried the child. As is therefore typical in domestic punishment instances, her friend stayed together with her spouse. “She said, ‘Please do not do such a thing, he is my hubby, ‘” Popova remembers. “I became in surprise that day I would personally do just about anything to fight these situations during my culture preventing violence within our families in Russia. That she remained with him and vowed to myself”
Today, Popova is a number one anti-domestic physical violence activist.
