High Commissioner’s appeal on the Day of Solidarity in Fight against Terrorism

High Commissioner’s appeal on the Day of Solidarity in Fight against Terrorism

Today we remember the people who fell in consequence of terrorist attacks — horrible, disgusting in their cruelty, when salvation is a miracle.

The right to life is the main inalienable human right, the basis of what is called "civilization". Violating this right, terrorists put themselves outside of humanity. Terrorism has no nationality and citizenship and it is stranger to the people’s world. Therefore, the fight against terrorism is a struggle for survival of mankind.

We bow to the memory of all the victims of terrorism. Russia has been its target many times. A silence minute in memory of the Beslan children, captives of Nord-Ost, passengers of the Moscow and St. Petersburg metro, Domodedovo airport victims and others.

We, people of different countries, can not come to agreement on so many issues: development and prospects of the world economy, political and diplomatic decisions, sanctions and their cancellation. But there is one thing we are solidary in: we must unite in the face of the threat of terrorism, we must collect all our strength, will and courage to fight against it.

High Commissioner for Human Rights in the Russian Federation

Dialogue with society. The convict was transferred to serve his sentence closer to home

07 July 2021
The possibility to communicate with family and friends is, perhaps, all that connects the convict with the outside world. Social ties are strands of steel, they can unwind for thousands of kilometers, but they never break. In September last year, amendments to the Penal Code entered into force, in order to facilitate convicts’ communication with relatives. Those…
