Anti-discrimination – the topic of the ADC Memorial bulletin

The yearly thematic issue of ADC Memorial’s Human Rights Bulletin has been published. It focuses first of all on Russia’s war against Ukraine and its damaging impact on vulnerable groups in the whole region (Roma and other ethnic minorities, migrants, children). The bulletin also covers the problem of discrimination and violations of the rights of ethnic minorities in Central Asian countries (Dungans in Kazakhstan; Pamiri peoples in Tajikistan); the struggle of indigenous peoples for their rights; the problem of gender equality in employment; repressions against LGBTI+ people in Russia; and some others.
