Abstract [en]

Since the 1990s Russia saw many social movements emerging due to developing spaces of social activism and a rising concern of citizens for their immediate surroundings. Although the Putin reign closed many opportunities, social activism in spaces which are not directly connected to political concerns survived and developed further. The example of the animal rights movement shows how its main concern for shelter and survival of homeless animals units a wide range of Russian citizens and mostly stays under the radar of state security organs. However, the access to information to world-wide developments supported the emergence of more radical forms of activism for universal rights of animals, such as animal liberation, property destruction and street protests. These currents were brought in by followers of vegan/vegetarian lifestyles and by anarchists, which propose oppositional positions and radical critiques on society as a whole.

The paper gives an overview over the main concerns of the Russian animal rights movement and shows how demands and critiques differ according to ideological backgrounds and social positions of their agents. On the one hand, ideological cleavages among concerned citizens and activists cause also differences in organizational approaches to social activism, which makes cooperation and mutual support difficult. But on the other, the Russian movement for the rights of animals succeeds in supporting the diffusion of international lifestyle values and forms of social activism.
