Komi activist refused to communicate with court in Russian

Komi activist Aleksey Ivanov, in Russia’s Komi Republic, insists on speaking in his native language at his trial.

Despite this being his right – Komi is a state language of the republic – the judge mocks him and tells him ‘you are Russian, speak Russian.’
