Author: Pavel Sulyandziga, member of UN Working Group on business & human rights, Published on: 21 December 2016

[Unofficial translation from original Russian by Business & Human Rights Resource Centre]

Because they can demonstrate that repression by Russian authorities and law enforcement agencies against indigenous peoples protecting their rights has become the norm...[Describes 5 cases: The Case of Casas, The Case of Sergei Nikiforov, The Case of Shaman Kechimov, The Case of "Dylacha" Community] [Business & Human Rights Resource Centre reached out to JSC "MC South", Petropavlovsk, Surgutneftegaz and Rostec Corporation to respond; previous response by JSC "MC South" provided in Russian. We have not received responses from the other companies].
