Abstract

Less than a year has passed since Natalia Estemirova (human rights defender and Memorial HRC board member) was murdered in July 2009. Natalia’s murder was not an isolated event and this article discusses the number of human rights defenders and journalists targeted and killed within Russia in recent years. It also highlights the continued failure to bring the perpetrators of such crimes to justice, the prevailing culture of impunity which exists in the absence of effective investigations and the increasing pressures placed upon civil society within Russia.
