Russia criticizes HRW’s anti-Putin report
The HRW report has ignored all attempts of the Russian government to improve human rights in the country, Mr. Gatilov has tweeted.
The 78-page report was revealed on April 24. It slams Putin’s government for introducing a series of restrictive laws, a nationwide campaign of invasive inspections of nongovernmental organizations, harassment, intimidation and imprisonment of political activists.
The survey focuses on new laws concerning the so-called “foreign agents” law that allegedly clamps down on foreign-funded NGOs.
