Lady Gaga tore into the Russian government for its stance on the LGBT community on Monday.

The singer, who returned to Twitter in advance of the release of her new album, “ARTPOP,” tweeted, “Sending bravery to LGBTs in Russia. The rise in government abuse is archaic. Hosing teenagers with pepper spray? Beatings? Mother Russia?”

“The Russian government is criminal. Oppression will be met with revolution. Russian LGBTs you are not alone. We will fight for your freedom,” Gaga continued.

The singer even taunted Russian officials for not arresting her when she performed there a few months ago.

“Why didn’t you arrest me when you had the chance, Russia?” she wrote, adding, “Because you didn’t want answer to the world.”
