In this submission, Amnesty International assesses the implementation of a number of recommendations that Russia supported during its previous Universal Periodic Review in 2009. The organization expresses concern about the increasing clampdown on the rights to freedom of expression and association, often accompanied by excessive use of force by the police. The organization also has grave concern about the frequently alleged use of torture and other ill-treatment, enforced disappearances, and extrajudicial executions in the North Caucasus.
