About free legal assistance system

On 25 August, a regular release of the ‘Human Rights’ programme was aired on the Public Television of Russia channel (OTR). This time it focused on the development of the free legal assistance system in Russian regions. The high-quality voluntary legal aid is especially important in the current rough social and economic circumstances.

The programme’s guest, Commissioner for Human Rights in the Republic of Tatarstan Saria Saburskaya, informed the audience about the large-scale work conducted to provide people in her region with available and free legal aid.

Another guest, Director of the Association of Lawyers of Russia Stanislav Aleksandrov told the viewers about the situation of legal aid to vulnerable groups of people in other regions. This public organisation greatly contributes to the matter and gives free consultations to more than 100 thousand people all over Russia each year.
