An LGBT activist and artist acquitted recently in a high-profile pornography case over nude drawings and other artwork she posted online has left Russia days after an unsuccessful appeal by prosecutors, her mother mother said on November 25. Yulia Tsvetkova, 29, was found not guilty in mid-July before prosecutors under pressure from anti-LGBT activists appealed the ruling. That appeal was rejected by an appeals court in the Siberian city of Komsomolsk-on-Amur on November 22, according to Tsvetkova’s mother, who lives in France. “Why they left, I think it’s obvious,” her mother, Anna Khodyreva, said. “Yulia is [regarded as] a ‘foreign agent,’ with a new law [criminalizing “LGBT propaganda”] — it’s easier to die than to live in Russia.”
