Three years ago in the real world, members of the group were jailed for their actions which brought their plight to the forefront of the rest of the Western world. Now that we're all caught up on history, we can look at how this effects the show.

The human rights violations would be an easy in for discussion with Russia. That's the sort of PR that Underwood would really bite into, especially if he needs a win with the American people. The trailer shows that there are riots so he may need something on the world scale to get the people on his side.

We also see a Putin-esque character in the trailer as well as previous spoilers that have said that a new Russian character would be a thorn in Underwood's side as well.

House of Cards returns on February 27.
