Lecture: Crackdown in Chechnya:
Ramzan Kadyrov’s Brutal Rule and International Human Rights

 

For more than a decade, Ramzan Kadyrov has led Chechnya through brutal repression with the tacit blessing of the Kremlin, gradually becoming a tyrant by ruthlessly eradicating even the mildest forms of dissent.

In spring 2017, the authorities launched a massive anti-gay purge, during which dozens of men were held in unofficial detention facilities, where they were tortured and abused by local police and security officials. This repressive measure has brought international attention to the horrific human rights abuses in Chechnya.

Presented by the U-M Center for Russian, East European, and Eurasian Studies.
