Russian Federation: Ingushetia: Doctors publicly branded as terrorists: medical action
Fourteen women doctors in the Russian Republic of Ingushetia have had their pictures distributed by the Russian authorities on posters, in the media and on the Internet along with allegations that they are "planning terrorist attacks". Such allegations are highly damaging and could put the physicians' lives at risk. AI is urging the Russian federal authorities to ensure that all the relevant agencies and authorities are informed of the women's innocence and instruct them to remove the pictures from public display, websites etc. to prevent further publication in the media and that the security of the women is guaranteed.
