Putin's Prison presents a series of screen captures taken from unsecured security cameras across Russia between 3-4 April 2022, on the 40th day of Russia's invasion of Ukraine.

The inclusion of counter-narrative text to the surveillance image is an ingenious attempt to subvert the camera's ability to enforce State control over its citizens.
