Agents of the people’: Four years of “foreign agents law” in Russia

18 november 2016

In July 2012, the Russian President signed into law a piece of legislation with a long and rather innocuous title: “On entering amendments to individual legislative acts of the Russian Federation in the part regulating the activities of non-commercial organizations performing the functions of a foreign agent (N 121-FZ)”. This briefing examines the devastating consequences of this law for non-governmental organizations (NGOs) the length and breadth of Russia.

Fast-Track to Torture: Abductions and Forcible Returns from Russia to Uzbekistan

20 april 2016

Hundreds of asylum-seekers, refugees and labour migrants have been abducted or forcibly returned from Russia to Uzbekistan since 2014 in blatant violation of Russia’s international human rights obligations.

A right, not a crime: Violations of the right to freedom of assembly in Russia

2 juni 2014

The respect for the rights to freedom of expression, peaceful assembly and association has long been tenuous in Russia. In the two years since President Putin’s inauguration for a third term in May 2012, however, these have come under a sustained assault.

Return to torture: Extradition, forcible returns and removals to Central Asia

3 juli 2013

Security services in Russia, Ukraine and the Central Asian republics are colluding in the abduction, disappearance, unlawful transfer, imprisonment and torture of individuals wanted on religious, political and economic grounds. The frequency of these human rights violations amounts to a region-wide renditions programme. This report exposes the ease with which these states are able to secure the return of individuals from other countries in the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) and how the perceived mutual interest of combating terrorism is being prioritized over the rights of those wanted for extradition.

Confronting the circle of injustice: Threats and pressure faced by lawyers in the North Caucasus, examines the harassment faced by criminal defence lawyers in the North Caucasus, a region of the Russian Federation where the violence of armed groups is countered by the heavy-handed response of the authorities, often with scant respect for basic human rights.

Beaten up for speaking out: Attacks on human rights defenders and journalists in the Russian Federation

4 oktober 2011

This report focuses on a number of different groups that are at particular risk of attack from both state and non-state actors. It is a wide range. What they share is the hostility of the Russian authorities and the causes they are seeking to advance. Unless and until such critical voices receive the recognition and protection they need – and are entitled to – Russia will not get the civil society it needs. In its place, corruption, the abuse of power and human rights violations will continue to flourish.

Civilians in the aftermath of war: The Georgia-Russia conflict one year on

31 juli 2009

The five-day war that began on the night of 7-8 August 2008 between Georgia and the Russian Federation resulted in hundreds of civilian deaths, thousands of injuries and the displacement of almost 192,000 people.
One year on from the conflict, its impact is still being felt – particularly in and around the disputed region of South Ossetia which is the focus of this report.
An estimated 30,000 people, mostly ethnic Georgians, remain displaced. Of these, the UN’s refugee agency, UNHCR, estimates that some 18,500 displaced people
from South Ossetia are unlikely to be able to return in the short term.
Security concerns and tensions run high in and around South Ossetia. The dangers of Explosive Remnants of War (EWR) persist and the clearance of
battlefield areas is on-going. An omnipresent sense of tension and insecurity prevent many people from returning to their homes and carrying on with their lives. Many of the people who have returned are facing a new reality brought about by the conflict, a reality in which they struggle to rebuild their lives and livelihood.

Georgia/Russia: Civilians in the line of fire: The Georgia-Russia conflict

In this report Amnesty International raises concerns that serious violations of both international human rights law and international humanitarian law were committed by all parties, both during the course of the conflict and in its aftermath.
