Russian Federation: Reprisals against journalists who cover protests
The new wave of protests that swept across Russia on 5 May 2018 and the reprisals against journalists and media workers covering the protests have shown the authorities’ increasing crackdown on the rights to freedom of expression and peaceful assembly. The authorities should immediately end the reprisals and promptly, thoroughly and impartially investigate all allegations of human rights violations against journalists and protesters, as well as bring to justice anyone suspected to be responsible in fair trials. The authorities must respect, promote and fulfil the rights to freedom of expression and peaceful assembly for all.
