Russia Reported on Human Rights at the UN
On February 4, 2009, in Geneva, the UN Human Rights Council's Universal Periodic Review Working Group reviewed the fulfillment of human rights obligations by the Russian Federation.
The Human Rights Council expressed its concern on the problem of Russian anti-extremist legislation which due to its excessive broadness violates human rights and on the growth of racism and aggressive xenophobia in the country.
The text of the official Russian report is available here.
The office of the High Commissioner on Human Rights prepared its own
report based on the materials provided by Russian NGOs.
