"The White Ribbon Project" is a campaign dedicated to raising awareness about the ongoing pro-democracy protest movement in the Russian Federation, symbolised by the white ribbon lapel pins popularised by protestors.
Inspired by the thousands of ordinary Russians who have peacefully protested against electoral fraud and in favour of democratic reform since December 2011, the Russia Studies Centre at the Henry Jackson Society asked key Russian activists and cultural figures to share their feelings about what the white ribbon symbolises for them.
This is the first of a series of videos, explaining why Russian protestors are wearing the white ribbon.
