The detention of over a thousand demonstrators and violence used against them by the Russian authorities across the country today threaten the fundamental freedoms of expression, association and assembly in the Russian Federation. The detention of journalists also threatens the freedom of the media. These fundamental rights are enshrined in the Russian constitution and we expect them to be protected, not eroded. Even if some of the demonstrations were not authorised in the location where they took place, this cannot justify police brutality and mass arrests.

La détention de plus d'un millier de manifestants et la violence à laquelle les autorités russes ont recouru aujourd'hui à leur endroit partout dans le pays menacent la liberté d'expression, d'association et de réunion en Fédération de Russie. La détention de journalistes constitue également une menace pour la liberté des médias. Ces droits fondamentaux sont inscrits dans la Constitution russe et on s'attendrait à ce qu'ils soient protégés, et non restreints.
