[2020] А report to the Human Rights Committee (detailed commentary on the Eighth Periodic Report the Russian Federation)

In May, in coalition with ECOM (Eurasian Coalition on Health, Rights, Gender and Sexual Diversity), Phoenix Plus NGO and an Anonymous transgender rights group from Siberia, we submitted a report to the Human Rights Committee.Our report to the HRC offers a detailed commentary on the Eighth Periodic Report the Russian Federation, submitted by the state in April, which is to be examined by the Committee in the upcoming 129th Session of the Committee. The report covers some major issues: absence of anti-discrimination legislation and its effect on the LGBT community, lack of protection from hate crimes, obstruction of civil and political rights for LGBT-people, and limitations on access to healthcare, with a special focus on the situation of gay men, other MSM, and transgender people.
