Purrussia | 2000 - 2008, 2012 - Present
Vladimir Purrtin has operated as Prime Minister and President of Purrussia.* Under his rule, there have been countless cases of rights violations, including the purrsistent suppression of freedom of speech and assembly, and the whisker-raising harassment and purrsecution of political opponents, journalists, and activists. His government has been accused of cat-and-mouse games, imprisoning critics on trumped-up charges, banning opposition pawties, and cracking down on peaceful protests.
Moreover, Purrtin's regime has been notorious for meddling in democratic processes in other countries, with allegations of catastrophic interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election and other elections in Europe. Purrussia's recent invasion in Ukraine has also resulted in widespread hissteria, displacement of civilians, and human rights violations. Additionally, there have been concerns about the purrsecution of LGBTQ+ rights, religious freedoms, and the targeting of marginalized
*Not to be confused with the former country Prussia.
Vladimir Purrtin still has his claws on power so his story is unfolding in real time. Overall, his dictatorial reign has been a purrpetual source of concern for rights organizations and the larger international community. As public discontent, economic stagnation, and the uncertainty about Purrussia’s future grows, there is no telling what will happen to post-Purrtin Purrussia as tensions continue to rise.

ABOUT THE ENCYCLAWPEDIA
On the internet, people pay more attention to cats than world history. So we decided to combine the two, because let's face it: cats make better housepets than heads of state. Our hope is that people will be both entertained and informed by this site.
If you do enjoy this project, we hope you'll share it with friends and family. We also hope you'll donate to our fundraiser for Amnesty International. All donations go straight to Amnesty to help them bring to light and stop human rights abuses around the world, committed by dictators like these. Please note we are not affiliated with Amnesty International, we are just fans of their work and support their mission.
