Deputy Justice Minister Sergey Gerasimov said earlier that when taking this decision in the ministry “Russian human rights commissioner Ella Pamfilova’s address [to the Russian president] to delay proceedings in the Supreme Court had been studied very attentively.”
Memorial is Russia’s oldest human rights organization that was founded in the late 1980s. Its initial task was to study the history of political repression in the former Soviet Union. Now it collects and publishes information about violations of human rights in the territory of the Commonwealth of Independent States.
