    Sammanfattning : The following paper is a socio-anthropological study of the anti-feminist and victim-blaming rhetoric that characterizes debates about cases related to gender-based violence on Russian-speaking Internet platforms. The study approaches the topic with two main questions in mind, namely: what are the common arguments of victim-blaming on Russian-speaking Internet platforms? How does the anti-feminist rhetoric on Russian-speaking Internet platforms relate to the cultural and socio-historic context of post-Soviet reality? The study used the renowned cases of the Khachaturian sisters and the Anastasia Yeshchenko murder as points of departure for data-collection as they created intense online discussions on Russian-speaking platforms.
