Russian Federation: Monitoring of IDPs and returnees still needed

At least 80,000 people are still internally displaced in Russia, more than 15 years after they were first forced to flee their homes. While large-scale hostilities ended several years ago, violence is still extensive in the North Caucasus and human rights abuses continue with perpetrators enjoying impunity. The economy is improving in Chechnya and reconstruction has brought impressive results in Grozny, but corruption and weak local governance continue to delay full recovery.

Profile of Internal Displacement: Russian Federation

The authorities in the Russian Federation continue to deprive the victims of displacement in the northern Caucasus of adequate protection. Two consecutive armed conflicts in Chechnya since 1994 have sent hundreds of thousands of civilians onto the roads fleeing large-scale violence and human rights abuses by security forces and Chechen rebel groups.

Russia should stop pressing internally displaced persons (IDPs) to return to Chechnya, and hold its forces to account for rights violations in the war-torn republic. Chechen IDPs in Ingushetia have been under constant pressure from Russian and Ingush authorities to go back to Chechnya, where civilians have faced widespread violence and severe human rights violations.
