Russian contemporary writers announce reading to support Khachaturyan sisters on trial for killing their abusive father

The murder case against the Khachaturyan sisters, who killed their father after facing years of constant emotional, physical, and sexual abuse at his hands, has drawn widespread attention from contemporary Russian writers from its inception. Women writers and especially women poets have played a central role in the public resistance to the case. On July 5 from 6:00 to 10:00 PM, sixty of those writers and poets will perform in a public reading at the Moscow club Avangarden 2.0.
