Oyub Titiev Support – Emergency Fund for Human Rights Defenders at Risk

Join the supporters of Chechen human rights defender Oyub Titiev and others like him now!

On his way to work on 9 January 2018, Oyub Titiev, director of the Human Rights Center Memorial’s Grozny office, disappeared. Seven hours passed before officials confirmed that he has been detained at the Kurchaloy road police station. He has been charged with unlawful drug possession and, if prosecuted, faces up to ten years in prison.

“By all appearances Oyub Titiev’s case is fabricated as revenge for his human rights work. We demand that the Russian authorities drop the charges, immediately release Oyub Titiev, and guarantee his safety. Russia’s international partners should keep a close watch on the situation and demand that Russian authorities free Oyub Titiev,” said Joanna Kurosz, Eurasia programme director at Civil Rights Defenders.
