Lady Gaga took to Twitter on Monday to slam the Russian government for its treatment of the LGBT community.

"The Russian Government is criminal. Oppression will be met with revolution. Russian LGBTs you are not alone. We will fight for your freedom," tweeted the 27-year-old pop star.

Lady Gaga performed in Moscow last December and showed support for LGBT rights from the stage.

"Thank you, Moscow, for spreading the message of equality around the world. Thank you for spreading the message of Born This Way," she told the audience during her show. "So stand up for yourself, or stand up for your friends. Where's all my gay kids tonight? Tonight, this is my house, Russia. You can be gay in my house. And if you ever need me Moscow, I will just be a telephone call away."

Lady Gaga challenged the Russian government to arrest her for her "homosexual propaganda" during the concert.

"Why didn't you arrest me when you had the chance, Russia? Because you didn't want answer to the world?," she tweeted on Monday.
