Harassment of activists in Nizhny Novgorod

Civil Rights Defenders calls on the senior EU officials participating at the EU-Russia summit in Nizhny Novgorod, Russia, to address the pressing situation for human rights defenders working in Russia.

In the days leading up to the EU-Russia summit on June 9 and 10 civil society organizations are gathered in the EU-Russia Civil Society Forum in Nizhny Novgorod. During the forum several human rights activists, among them Olga Sadovaskaya from our partner organization Interregional Committee against Torture, have been harassed by local authorities.
