Russian Federation: Serious human rights violations associated with the preparation for and staging of the Sochi Olympic Games

, N° d'index: EUR 46/008/2014

In this open letter, Amnesty International expresses concerns about the targeting of activists because of their legitimate work in raising environmental concerns around the Olympics. Environmental activists have also been targeted in an attempt to prevent them from exercising their rights to freedom of expression while the Games are ongoing. The IOC must immediately raise these issues with the Russian authorities and demand that all individuals who have been targeted are released from detention and not subjected to any further harassment.
