Well, that's depressing.

Kirill Serebrennikov's house arrest has been extended into April.

“If this were a persecution, not a prosecution, his performance wouldn’t have been staged at the Bolshoi.”

I wonder if this would be the persecution type of thing:

Moscow Raid on Movie Theater Closes ‘The Death of Stalin’
https://www.nytimes.com/2018/01/27/movies/moscow-raid-on-movie-theater-closes-the-death-of-stalin.html

Perhaps the quirkiest claim against the film came from Stalin’s great-grandson, Jacob Jugashvili, who wrote on Facebook that the creators of “The Death of Stalin” are unlikely to “make a comedy called ‘TheDeath of Kim Il Sung,’” because North Korea, unlike Russia, is a strong country that will not stand for it.

Strong = totalitarian regime (presumably)

Nureyev did well at the 2018 Benois de la Danse awards in Moscow:

Russia's troubled Nureyev production sweeps board at ballet awards
https://www.reuters.com/article/russia-bolshoi-nureyev/russias-troubled-nureyev-production-sweeps-board-at-ballet-awards-idUSL5N1T75TF

"Among the award winners in the Prix Benois ceremony was the ballet’s original choreographer Kirill Serebrennikov, who is awaiting trial on what his supporters say are charges trumped up to punish him for challenging the Russian establishment."
Serebrennikov is not actually the choreographer (that's Possokhov) but rather, the director. But whatever.
