Interview with Tatyana Lokshina

Tatyana Lokshina, Russia researcher at the Moscow Office of Human Rights Watch, said the situation in Chechnya is controversial today.

“On one hand the social infrastructure has improved very significantly over the past two years. Also under the presidency of Ramzan Kadyrov the situation with abductions is not as dramatic as it used to be. We are glad to state that there are some improvements. However the civil society in Chechnya has been wiped out completely,” stated Lokshina.
