Russia Election Domestic Violence

Alyona Popova, the democratic Yabloko party candidate for the State Duma, center, is surrounded by her campaign's team members, during a meeting with voters in Moscow, Russia, Friday, Sept. 3, 2021. One of the country’s most ardent feminists, Popova has fought for years without success to get members of the State Duma to draft legislation to protect women. So she decided to run herself in the Sept. 19 election.
