Act now to end impunity in Russia: Tanya Lokshina
21 Nov 2012
Tanya Lokshina, Human Rights Watch's senior researcher in Moscow, has long been a thorn in the side of the Russian authorities. During the war in Chechnya, Lokshina documented and publicised the indiscriminate shelling, torture and disappearances by Russia's forces and violations by insurgents. She has covered other atrocities in the Northern Caucasus, as well as, more recently, the crackdown on dissent in Moscow.
