Pretty Sure This Isn't Legal

I'm no expert on Russian law but I'm going to go out on a limb and say this is against the law:

"A group of men burst into a contemporary art gallery [in Moscow] Saturday, destroying work by an ethnic Georgian artist and beating up the owner, Marat Guelman. Mr. Guelman is well known both for his display of politically inspired and irreverent art and, most recently, his public attacks on neofascists for their dislike of non-Russians and of Western influence on Russian society."

The full story is here.
