She wrote on her twitter, "That’s it. Not an attorney anymore. Colleagues have decided to expel me from their ranks. Like Nelson Mandela used to say: “For to be free is not merely to cast off one's chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others.” That’s how I live".
She defended political prisoners, involving blogger Eduard Palchis, former investigator and founder of the ByChange project Yevgeny Yushkevich and others.
