Government & businesses interests silence Russia's indigenous peoples

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

In this article I want to tell you about some of the cases of repression and persecution that indigenous peoples have suffered in our country in recent years...Why have I decided to describe these cases and to give them visibility and a voice? 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].
