Side event: “Repressions against Russian civil society in 2015”

Since the beginning of Russia’s involvement in the armed conflict in Ukraine in March 2014 the human rights situation in Russia has dramatically deteriorated. War-time mobilization of the public against “enemies” and unprecedented poisonous propaganda have had tremendous negative impact on the situation of civil society.

Since the beginning of Russia’s involvement in the armed conflict in Ukraine in March 2014 the human rights situation in Russia has dramatically deteriorated. War-time mobilization of the public against “enemies” and unprecedented poisonous propaganda have had tremendous negative impact on the situation of civil society.

Increasingly harsh application of the “foreign agents” and "undesirable organisation" laws threatens existence of leading NGOs. Politically motivated persecution has resulted in long-term sentences of the opponents of the government. Threats to civic activists and critics of the government come not only from authorities but increasingly from private groups who are supported by the government and label activists as “traitors”. New repressive laws have been adopted, further shrinking space for all fundamental rights and freedoms, enshrined in OSCE commitments.
