In a small mining town, 33-year-old human rights activist Yana Polyakova committed suicide. The local authorities, through the local power structures and the KGB, systematically persecuted the woman. Provocations, bullying, psychological pressure, and finally, torture and beatings were used. The woman was convicted for slandering a policeman who severely beat her, with the payment of huge monetary compensation in his favor. Unable to bear the injustice and cynicism, Yana Polyakova took her own life.
