Artist Sued for Russophobia
Chimera of Mysterious Russian Soul

Over a hundred Russian nationalists have sued against the modern Russian artist Lena Hades. A pretext for that is her two well-known paintings, namely Welcome to Russia (1999) and Chimera of Mysterious Russian Soul (1996) and one post in an anti-fascist weblog.
      
      Members of various nationalistic groups and parties insulted by these works have launched a big campaign in Live Journal and on nationalistic forums and filed more than a hundred private petitions for commencement of the artists prosecution.
      
      The initiators of this campaign do not conceal their intentions to churn out such cases. Here is what they claim, for example: I see that nobody gives a damn about Lena Hades herself, the point is to create the biggest possible number of precedents for prosecuting for russophobia.
      
      Lots of Russian artists and sensible people stand up for Lena Hades with her talented satirical works.
