Moscow Pride Loses Again

Moscow gay pride just lost their appeal to a Russian higher court, which ruled that the city was justified in banning their event. Moscow Pride's lawyer, Dmitri Bartenev, whom I met last month, has vowed to take the case to the European Court Of Human Rights. I wonder what can be done on our end to help? Perhaps making Bartenev a grand marshall of the DC or NY events would add pressure to the Russian government? Any added attention might help, but I'm really stuck on ideas to help this guy.
