Dear Prosecutor General,
I am writing to express my concern regarding the unjust prosecution of theatre director Evgenia Berkovich and playwright Svetlana Petriychuk who are facing absurd charges of “justifying terrorism” (Article 205.2 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation).

Evgenia Berkovich and Svetlana Petriychuk have been in pre-trial detention since 5 May 2023. The charges against them are related to the play “Finist Yasny Sokol” about women who left for Syria and married members of armed groups. In 2021-2022, “Finist Yasny Sokol” received prestigious Russian theatrical awards, including the Golden Mask Award for Best Playwright, and was widely acclaimed by critics. Before the criminal prosecution, the accusation of “justifying
terrorism” was never heard against this play. On the contrary, critics and spectators noted its humanistic message.

Evgenia Berkovich and Svetlana Petriychuk have not committed any internationally recognizable crime and are targeted simply for exercising their right to freedom of expression.

I urge you to immediately drop all charges against Evgenia Berkovich and Svetlana Petriychuk and ensure their immediate release.

Yours sincerely,
