Call on Russia to stop the persecution of human rights defenders.
To be a human rights defender in Russia remains a very dangerous profession. Human rights defenders are prosecuted under fabricated criminal charges, vilified by the media and officials, attacked, and even murdered.
Oyub Titiev is facing 10 years in prison based on fabricated charges of possessing illegal drugs; Igor Nagavkin, is awaiting trial on fabricated charges of theft. Andrey Rudomakha was brutally beaten up in the south-west of Russia.
And right now, Russia is hosting the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
In every region where the World Cup is taking place, human rights defenders are being persecuted.
