Victoria Lomasko introduces her own work as follows:

“2012 was marked by heavily attended protests by the Russian opposition. For the first time since the early 1990s, the protest movement in Russian attracted worldwide attention. Many people anticipated an “orange” revolution.

Beginning with the elections to the State Duma, on December 4, 2011, and until November 2012, I kept a graphic “chronicle of resistance” in which I made on-the-spot sketches of all important protest-related events. [In this work I] recall and describe the protests, in which I was involved as a rank-and-file albeit regular participant.”
