Our first survey described the development of a system that is easily exploited for purposes of repression.

Our second survey considers prosecutions for involvement in Hizb ut-Tahrir, an international religious organisation that 15 years ago the Supreme Court of the Russian Federation ruled, on no evidence, to be a terrorist organisation.

Prosecution of members of this organisation are conducted in a standardized, production-line type manner, which currently includes:

- identical charges that bear no relation to terrorism;
- about 230 individuals behind bars;
- prison terms of up to 24 years.

For more information, we invite you to read our survey.
