Submission + - Russia uses piracy raids to suppress dissent->

twistedcubic writes: The New York Times reports that Russian police use software piracy raids as an excuse to suppress dissenting groups, such as Baikal Environmental Wave, who oppose the reopening of a paper mill which dumps waste chemicals in Lake Baikal. The environmental group says it purchased Microsoft software to avoid a raid, to no avail. Many such groups have the charges dismissed in court, but this apparently does not stop the government.
