From the Introduction:

        “The NGO Sutyajnik continues to maintain a high level of activity […]  The list of judicial decisions in cases initiated by Sutyajnik at all levels, including the European Court of Human Rights, which have led to various corrections of the decrees of the Mayor of Yekaterinburg is truly impressive.  There were three such decisions just in 2003. The Oblast Charter Court considered two cases against the administration of Yekaterinburg, and in another, the Federal Court for the Lenin rayon of Yekaterinburg struck down a decree of the Mayor of Yekaterinburg”. 

Tatyana Merzlyakova, the Human Rights Ombudsman of Sverdlovsk oblast, member of the Sutyajnik’s Board of Directors.

Sutyajnik expresses gratitude to the International Senior Lawyers Project for providing support in editing the Report through Natasha Lisman's assistance.
