Human Rights Attack


Lev Ponomarev, a prominent Russian human rights activist long critical of
the government, was attacked Tuesday. Amnesty International has called on Russian authorities to investigate, as has For Human Rights.

“Far too many abuses against human rights...have gone unpunished and perpetrators believe
they can act with total impunity," said Nicola Duckworth, Europe and
Central Asia Program Director.  "President Dmitry Medvedev and the Russian government must speak out
clearly against the increasing climate of intolerance."
