The Ladies of FEMEN are outraged at the recent DDOS attacks on Livejournal. Seeing as how Livejournal is FEMEN’s primary outlet for their activities, not to mention is the number one blogging platform in the former soviet states, they take these attacks as a personal blight. 

It is important to note that Livejournal is not only the number one blogging platform in the former soviet states, but it has also become a haven for political dissidence. Since the media is very tightly controlled, many dissident journalists have turned to Livejournal as their outlet, and have amassed an incredible following. This has led many to believe that the attacks on Livejournal have been initiated by the state, specifically Russia, in order to quell dissidence.
